KyTea Compile Options

KyTea Home

This page describes the options that can be specified when compiling KyTea. If any of these are specified when running ./configure, the appropriate changes will be reflected in the final binary.


To achieve a higher level of accuracy, particularly for probability calculations, KyTea features are stored as 64-bit doubles. In order to increase speed and reduce model size, features can also be stored as 16-bit integers by setting this option. However, this may slightly decrease the accuracy due to rounding errors.


KyTea, like most Linux programs, is installed to the /usr directory by default. However, if you would like to install to a different directory (for example, if you do not have root privileges), you may use this option to indicate the installation directory.


This will raise the optimization to level 3, resulting in the program running slightly faster than normal.
