       genbrk  -  Compiles  ICU break iteration rules source files into binary
       data files


       genbrk [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -V, --version ] [ -c, --copyright ]  [  -v,
       --verbose  ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -i, --icudatadir directory
       ] -r, --rules rule-file -o, --out output-file


       genbrk reads the break (boundary) rule source code from  rule-file  and
       creates  a  break  iteration data file. Normally this data file has the
       .brk extension.

       The details of the rule syntax can be found in ICU’s User Guide.


       -h, -?, --help
              Print help about usage and exit.

       -V, --version
              Print the version of genbrk and exit.

       -c, --copyright
              Embeds the standard ICU copyright into the output-file.

       -v, --verbose
              Display extra informative messages during execution.

       -d, --destdir destination
              Set the destination directory of the output-file to destination.

       -i, --icudatadir directory
              Look  for  any  necessary  ICU  data  files  in  directory.  For
              example, the file must be located when ICU’s data  is
              not  built  as a shared library.  The default ICU data directory
              is  specified  by  the  environment  variable  ICU_DATA.    Most
              configurations of ICU do not require this argument.

       -r, --rules rule-file
              The source file to read.

       -o, --out output-file
              The output data file to write.


       When the rule-file contains a byte order mark (BOM) at the beginning of
       the file, which is the Unicode character U+FEFF, then the rule-file  is
       interpreted as Unicode. Without the BOM, the file is interpreted in the
       current operating system default codepage.  In order to  eliminate  any
       ambiguity  of  the  encoding  for  how the rule-file was written, it is
       recommended that you write this file in UTF-8 with the BOM.


       ICU_DATA  Specifies the directory  containing  ICU  data.  Defaults  to
                 ${prefix}/share/icu/4.2.1/.   Some tools in ICU depend on the
                 presence of the trailing slash. It is thus important to  make
                 sure that it is present if ICU_DATA is set.
