PATTERN
=======
-Pattern is a web mining module for the Python programming language. It bundles tools for data retrieval (Google + Twitter + Wikipedia API, web spider, HTML DOM parser), text analysis (rule-based shallow parser, WordNet interface, syntactical + semantical n-gram search algorithm, tf-idf + cosine similarity + LSA metrics) and data visualization (graph networks). The module is bundled with 30+ example scripts.
+Pattern is a web mining module for the Python programming language. It bundles tools for data mining (Google + Twitter + Wikipedia API, web spider, HTML DOM parser), natural language processing (tagger/chunker, n-gram search, sentiment analysis, WordNet), machine learning (vector space model, k-means clustering, Naive Bayes + k-NN + SVM classifiers) and network analysis (graph centrality and visualization). It is well documented and bundled with 30+ examples and 350+ unit tests. The source code is licensed under BSD and available from http://www.clips.ua.ac.be/pages/pattern.

INSTALLATION
============
-Pattern is written for Python 2.4+ (no support for Python 3 yet). The module has no external dependencies except when using LSA in the vector module, which requires NumPy (installed by default on Mac OS X). To install Pattern so that the module is available in all your scripts, unzip the download and from the command line do:
-> cd pattern-2.3

If none of the above works, you can make Python aware of the module in three ways:
- Put the pattern folder in the same folder as your script.
- Put the pattern folder in the standard location for modules so it is available to all scripts:
- c:\python25\Lib\site-packages\ (Windows),
- /Library/Python/2.5/site-packages/ (Mac OS X),

- /usr/lib/python2.5/site-packages/ (Unix).

+ /Library/Python/2.6/site-packages/ (Mac OS X),

+ /usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/ (Unix).
- Add the location of the module to sys.path in your script, before importing it:
>>> MODULE = '/users/tom/desktop/pattern'
>>> import sys; if MODULE not in sys.path: sys.path.append(MODULE)
