       catod - To convert the text format of a dictionary to binary


       catod  [-s maxword ] [-R] [-r] [-e] [-S] [-U]
              [-P dicpasswd ]    [-p frepasswd ]
              [-h cixingfile ] outfilename




       This command converts a dictionary from text format into binary format.

       outfilename  is  the  name  of  the  binary  format   dictionary.    If
       outfilename  is  not  given,  the output will be passed to the standard
       output device(stdout).

       The input file may be piped in by using the "<" command.  For example,
            catod  basic.dic  <  basic.u
       "basic.dic" here is the output  binary  format  dictionary,  while  the
       "basic.u" is the input text format dictionary.

       If the input text dictionary is not given, the input will be taken from
       the standard input(stdin).  To end the input via standard input,  press


       -s     maxword
              To specify the maximum number of words.  Default is 70000.

       -R     To  create a dictionary for both forward and reverse conversion.

       -r     To  create  a  reverse  format  dictionary  only   for   reverse

       -e     If the Hanzi inside the text dictionary contains characters such
              as space and tab, they will  be  compacted  to  special  format.

       -S     To create a static dictionary.

       -U     To create a dynamic dictionary.

       -P     dicpasswd
              To specify the password for the dictionary.
              If  "-N" is used instead, the password of the dictionary will be
              set to "*".

       -p     frepasswd
              To specify the password for the usage frequency file.
              If "-n" is used instead, the password of the frequency file will
              be set to "*".

       -h     cixingfile
              To specify the Cixing definition file.
