Error: empty dic file

Hello!

When I run LanguageTool 2.3 as stand-alone, I have this error: empty dic file
(more details below)

I tried to update with JARs of update 2.3.1 from Maven. Same error.

My environment is: Windows 7-64 French, Java 1.7.0_40 (32 bits).

Any idea ?

Details:

java -jar languagetool-standalone.jar
error: empty dic file
Hash Manager Error : 2

Thank you.

Thanks for your bug report. Could you please check if these three files
are there and what size they are?

./org/languagetool/resource/fr/french.dict
./org/languagetool/resource/fr/hunspell/fr_FR.aff
./org/languagetool/resource/fr/hunspell/fr_FR.dic

All are there:

french.dict : 596 KB (609 616 bytes).
fr_FR.aff : 402 KB (412 361).
fr_FR.dic : 1128 KB (1 154 546).
-> Common date: 2013-09-30.

By the way, there is no
“org/languagetool/resource/en/hunspell/en_GB.aff” nor “en_US.aff”, if
that can help.
(but .dict are there).

Thank you for your help.

It’s okay when en_GB.aff and en_US.aff are missing. Could you maybe try
this on the command line?

java -jar languagetool-commandline.jar -l fr test.txt

Put some short French sentence into a plain text file “test.txt” for
this. You need to be in the directory where LT is installed when calling
this command.

The same error occurs:

java -jar languagetool-commandline.jar -l fr test.txt
Expected text language: French
Working on test.txt…

You’re the first person to report this and I cannot reproduce the
problem here, so I can only suggest what you could try:

-Does it also happen with 64 bit Java?

-You could replace hunspell-win-x86-32.dll with the version available at
https://github.com/dren-dk/HunspellJNA/blob/master/native-lib/hunspell-win-x86-32.dll (click the “Raw” link for download). In LanguageTool, that file is inside libs/hunspell-native-libs.jar, so you’d need to unzip that file, replace the DLL, and zip it again.

Regards
Daniel

  • Same error message with Java 32 and 64 bits.
  • I updated Java to 1.7.0_45-b18: same error (32 and 64 bits).
  • updated “hunspell-win-x86-32.dll”: same error.
  • Additionally, I tried to install LanguageTool 2.3 in LibreOffice
    4.0.4.2: no correction is apparent (even with Hunspell unchecked) in
    a text marked as English.

Well, if I am the only one with this problem, maybe there is something
wrong in my system (I don’t know what, since I use other Java
applications with no problem).

Thank you for your help, I appreciate.

If you search the web for “error: empty dic file” you’ll find other people have this problem, too. But I didn’t find a solution. It’s not specific to LanguageTool, but to the fact that LanguageTool (a Java software) uses hunspell (a C or C++ software) internally. I’m sorry that’s all I can say for now.
