hyphenatr: Tools to Hyphenate Strings Using the 'Hunspell' Hyphenation...

Description Details Note Author(s)


Identifying hyphenation points in strings can be useful for both text processing and display functions. The 'Hunspell' hyphenation library provides tools to perform hyphenation using custom language rule dictionaries. Words can be hyphenated directly or split into hyphenated component strings for further processing.


Based on the Hunspell hyphenation library and includes hyphenation rules dictionaries from LibreOffice.

Special thanks to Edwin de Jonge & Gergely Dar<c3><b3>czi for language testing.


The en_US hyphenation rules dictionary is loaded by default
