./contentmine/ami/bin/cmine data/gp_globalhealth word\(search\)w.search:contentmine/dicts/desc2017-cmdict.xml
I have also tried with an absolute path, to no avail.
I have also tried with a non-existent file name, and the results are identical
It might be useful to say that, by the end, it outputs this:
So, how do I correctly specify the dictionary file ?
