patgen – Generate hyphenation patterns
This is the last version of the program distributed by Knuth; it advertises itself as a pattern generator for “the algorithm used in TeX”, but, of course, the patterns used in modern distributions are Unicode-based.
The currently-maintained patgen is part of web2c (and all major TeX distributions).
