### As a Python module

Convert SRO to syllabics:

>>> from crk_orthography import sro2syllabics
>>> sro2syllabics('nêhiyawêwin')
>>> sro2syllabics('write nêhiyawêwin')
'write ᓀᐦᐃᔭᐍᐏᐣ'

Convert syllabics to SRO:

>>> from crk_orthography import syllabics2sro
>>> syllabics2sro('ᐊᒋᒧᓯᐢ')
>>> syllabics2sro(' → ᒪᐢᑫᑯᓯᕽ  ᑎᕒᐁᕀᓬ ')
' → maskêkosihk  tireyl '

### On the command line

crk_orthography installs two command line programs:

#### sro2syllabics

Use this to convert text from a file or from stdin to syllabics.

$ echo “minôs” | sro2syllabics ᒥᓅᐢ $ sro2syllabics my-file-in-sro.txt ᒥᓅᐢ

For more information over its options, type:

sro2syllabics –help

#### syllabics2sro

Use this to convert text from a file or from stdin to SRO.

$ echo “ᒥᓅᐢ” | syllabics2sro minôs $ syllabics2sro my-file-in-syllabics.txt minôs $ syllabics2sro –macrons my-file-in-syllabics.txt minōs

For more information over its options, type:

syllabics2sro –help
