If you want an LM built over character sequences, you simply have to break
your input stream into whitespace separated letters. Note that there are
many nuances here - E.g. Should you have new word boundary characters
(analogous to <s> and </s>) or simply have one word per line, have the
fixed vocabulary (the alphabet + any meta chars you want) given up front or
learned at build-time, how you handle special characters and punctuations,

Assuming English text, the following Unix command can get you started. The tr
command breaks the stream into one word per line and sed inserts a space
after every letter on each line.

cat corpus.txt | tr ' ' '\012' | sed 's/\(.\)/\1 /g' | ngram-count ...
