== Welcome
This is a n-gram based language detector, written in ruby. 

For technical details about language detection, I recommend this paper:

== Installation
sudo gem sources -a (you only have to do this once)
sudo gem install feedbackmine-language_detector

== Usage
require 'language_detector'
d =
p d.detect('this text is in English')

== Thanks
Kevin Burton ( ). I used all the training data in his ngramcat project.
