hfst is the Helsinki finite-state toolkit. This is formalism-compatible with both lexc and twolc, so, kind of like foma is to xfst.


  • automake, autoconf, libtool


Subversion checkout

"MacOS X note: you need XCode installed on your Mac. It came with your computer, and can be downloaded from Apple (registration required)"
$ svn co https://hfst.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/hfst/trunk hfst 
$ cd hfst/hfst-2.0/
$ autoreconf -i
$ ./configure --prefix=/home/fran/local/
$ make
$ sudo make install

Prepackaged tarball

Download the latest version from [1], and unzip. Then follow the instructions in the README file, i.e.:

$ cd hfst-2.0/
$ ./configure
$ make
$ sudo make install


$ svn co https://victorio.uit.no/langtech/trunk/st/fao
$ cd fao
