NAME
       dictunformat - create a raw database file from a .dict and .index file

SYNOPSIS
       dictunformat [OPTIONS] index_filename

DESCRIPTION
       dictunformat takes a dictionary index file as a parameter and a
       dictionary database file on stdin and outputs a raw database that may
       be used to create a DICT database by dictfmt -t.  This may be useful if
       it is desired to create a dictionary for a locale other than that for
       which the original was created, or if it is desired to correct or
       supplement a pre-existing dictionary.

OPTIONS
       --help displays a usage message and exits.

       --headword-separator sep
              sep is the headword separator used when creating the origianl
              dictionary.  (See --headword-separator in dictfmt (1)).

       index_filename
              is the .index file of the original dictionary.
