5.9 How can I run the SRI front-end standalone?

I installed at SRI and ICSI a new program that Ramana wrote,
"create-normalized-feature-files" that computes feature files using
the Decipher frontend.  It is installed in
$EVAL2000/bin/$MACHINE_TYPE.  Running it without arguments gives a
usage message.

I also wrote a wrapper script, go.dump-features, that uses standard
eval system configuration values to dump feature files for a set of
wavefiles.  It has a man page.  By combining it with go.fe-normalize
(or not) you can produce either speaker-normalized or raw features.

The environment variable "$EVAL2000" should be set to:
Finally, to be able to access the man page for "go.fe-normalize", you need to add $EVAL2000/man to your $MANPATH environment variable.
