Malaga is a development environment for natural-language grammars based on the Left-Associative Grammar formalism. Malaga grammars can be used for automatic morphological and/or syntactic analysis.

The program malsym compiles a Malaga symbol file. Give it the symbol file (suffix .sym or .esym) that is to be translated as argument. If an extended-symbol-file (suffix .esym) is to be compiled, you must add the option -use.

See info Malaga for details.


Print a help text about malsym's command line arguments and exit.

Print malsym's version number and exit.


Malaga has been developed by Bjoern Beutel. Numerous other people distributed to it. This manpage was originally written for the Debian distribution by Antti-Juhani Kaijanaho.
