TACL

tacl is a tool for performing basic text analysis on the texts available from the Chinese Buddhist Electronic Text Association (CBETA). It is largely generic, however, and can operate with minor modifications on other corpora.

The code is developed at https://github.com/ajenhl/tacl/ and the documentation is available at http://tacl.readthedocs.io/en/latest/.

Installation

Using Python 3 (minimum version 3.5), either run pip install tacl or download the code manually and run python setup.py install. The dependencies are installed automatically when tacl is installed with pip. Note however that on Windows (and perhaps Mac OS X) it is very likely that the dependencies that have non-Python components will not build due to a missing compiler. In such a case, follow the instructions at https://github.com/ajenhl/tacl/wiki/Installation

Usage

Run tacl -h for a listing of available subcommands, and tacl <subcommand> -h for help on a specific subcommand.
