mkbinhmmlist
— convert HMMList file into binary format

Synopsis

mkbinhmmlist {hmmdefs_file} {HMMList_file} {output_binhmmlist_file}

Description

mkbinhmmlist converts a HMMList file to binary format. Since the index trees for lookup are also stored in the binary format, it will speed up the startup of Julius, namely when using big HMMList file.

For conversion, HMM definition file hmmdefs_file that will be used together at Julius needs to be specified. The format of the HMM definition file can be either ascii or Julius binary format.

The output binary file can be used in Julius as the same by "-hlist". The format wil be auto-detected by Julius.

mkbinhmmlist can read gzipped file.

Options

hmmdefs_file

Acoustic HMM definition file, in HMM ascii format or Julius binary format.

HMMList_file

Source HMMList file

output_binhmmlist_file

Output file, will be overwritten if already exist.

Examples
