       -f FORMAT
           By default Cuneiform outputs plain text. There  are  several  other
           output formats. To get a list run the command "cuneiform -f".

           Undocumented option.

       -l LANGUAGE
           By  default  Cuneiform  recognizes  English  text.  To  change  the
           language use the command line switch -l followed by  your  language
           string. To get a list of supported languages type "cuneiform -l".

       -o OUTPUT
           If  you  do not define an output file with the -o switch, Cuneiform
           writes the result to  a  file  "cuneiform-out.[FORMAT]".  The  file
           extension depends on your output format.
