Portuguese (BR) Dictionary (ASCII)


    Hi.

    The Portuguese (Brazil) word list, in BR.dic file, was
    generated using the ISPELL spell checker, and its Brazilian
    package, maintained mainly by Ricardo Ueda <ueda@ime.usp.br>.
    In GPL, BR.dic can be distributed, but have to be FREE.


  The credits for the creation of this word list goes to Sadao Massago

   <smassago@icmc.sc.usp.br>


  The credits for ISPELL can be found at the ISPELL home page

  Word Lists" below...


      Have a nice day.

    How to generate word lists using the ISPELL spell checker.

  =============================================================


  You can get ispell from

   http://fmg-www.cs.ucla.edu/ficus-members/geoff/ispell.html

  * Required files
     - ispell (of course)
     - radicals file
     - affixs file


  The dictionary file (.hash or .has) of ispell is generated by
  buildhas program, using the radicals file (without a default
  extension) and the affixs file (.aff). The buildhas command line is

    bulidhas [radicals file] [affixs file .aff] [dictionary file .has]

  Look at README file to see what is the radicals file.


  With the .has (or .hash) and .aff files in hand, you can generate the
  word list by the command line:

  (UNIX)

    cat [radical] | ispell -e -d [dictionary] | tr " " "\n"  |sort| uniq > [wordlist]

  where:

    [radical]    -> path and name of the radicals file.

    [dictionary] -> path and name of the .has (or .hash) file.

    [wordlist]   -> path and name of the word list file.

    tr " " "\n"  -> replaces the spaces by a "new line" character.

    uniq         -> eliminates repeated lines.


  (DOS)

    type [radical] | ispell -e -d [dictionary] > [wordlist]


  Under Dos, you get list of words, but with similar words in the
  same line. You can do a simple program to replace spaces by a
  "new line" command. You have to use WinEdt' Sort Lines dialog
  (Tools menu) to sort as WinEdt dictionary and remove repeated
  words.


  This method of obtaining word lists is based in the makefile included
  in the Portuguese ispell dictionary source distributed by

    http://www.ime.usp.br/~ueda/br.ispell/
