Pure Python module to hyphenate text using existing dictionaries
hyphenator is a pure Python module to hyphenate text using existing hyphenation dictionaries, like those used by OpenOffice.org.
>>> from hyphenator import Hyphenator >>> h = Hyphenator("/usr/share/myspell/hyph_nl_NL.dic") >>> h.inserted('lettergrepen') u'let-ter-gre-pen' >>> h.wrap('autobandventieldopje', 11) ('autoband-', 'ventieldopje') >>> for pair in h.iterate('Amsterdam'): ... print pair ... ('Amster', 'dam') ('Am', 'sterdam') >>>
- 100% pure Python
