patgen – Generate hyphenation patterns
Patgen takes a list of hyphenated words and generates a set of patterns that can be used by the TeX 82 hyphenation algorithm.
Patgen was originally written by Frank M. Liang as part of his Stanford Ph.D. work, and has always been distributed alongside the other programs coming from the Stanford TeX project. It was updated in 1991 by Peter Breitenlohner for the new 8-bit features of TeX version 3. (These updates related to input/output and programming overhead; the actual pattern generation algorithms were not changed.)
Patgen is currently maintained as part of TeX Live.
