EXAMPLES

Converting NAACL files to BLINKER format:

perl chFormat_alSet-version.pl -ist test-giza.eng2spa.naacl -is test.eng.naacl -it test.spa.naacl -ost test-giza.eng2spa.blinker -of BLINKER -os test.eng -ot test.spa

Converting a GIZA file to NAACL format:

perl chFormat_alSet-version.pl -ist test-giza.eng2spa.giza -if GIZA -ost test-giza.eng2spa.naacl -os test.eng.naacl -ot test.spa.naacl
