Julia bindings for Japanese morphological analyzer MeCab
using MeCab # Create MeCab tagger mecab = Mecab() # You can give MeCab option like "-o wakati" # mecab = Mecab("-o wakati") # Parse text # It returns Array of MecabNode type results = parse(mecab, "すももももももももものうち") # Access each result. # It returns Array of String for result in results println(result.surface, ":", result.feature) end # Parse surface results = parse_surface(mecab, "すももももももももものうち") # Access each result # It returns Array of Array of MecabNode for result in results println(result) end # Parse nbest result nbest_results = parse_nbest(mecab, 3, "すももももももももものうち") for nbest_result in nbest_results for result in nbest_result println(result.surface, ":", result.feature) end println() end
- dictionary for mecab (such as mecab-ipadic, mecab-naist-jdic, and so on)
If you don't install mecab and libmecab yet, MeCab.jl will install mecab, libmecab and mecab-ipadic that are confirmed to work with MeCab.jl under unix-like environment.
Note that by default, MeCab.jl will try to find system-installed libmecab (e.g. /usr/lib/libmecab.dylib). If you have already libmecab installed, this might cause library or dictionary incompatibility that MeCab.jl assumes. If you have any problem with system-installed ones, please try to ignore them and rebuild MeCab.jl by:
julia> ENV["MECABJL_LIBRARY_IGNORE_PATH"] = "/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib" # depends on your environment julia> Pkg.build("MeCab")
The libmecab library path will be stored in
MeCab.libmecab after loading MeCab.jl. The library path should look like for example:
julia> using MeCab julia> MeCab.libmecab "$your_home_dir_path/.julia/v0.4/MeCab/deps/usr/lib/libmecab.dylib"
