= Ruby-LinkParser
== Authors
* Michael Granger <ged@FaerieMUD.org>
* Martin Chase <stillflame@FaerieMUD.org>
* Giles Bowkett <gilesb@gmail.com>
== Requirements
* Ruby >= 1.8.5
* The included fork of link-grammar-4.3.5 from the AbiWord project
(http://www.abisource.com/projects/link-grammar/).
== General Information
This module is a Ruby binding for the link-grammar library, a syntactic parser
of English.
This is a fork of a library found here: http://deveiate.org/projects/Ruby-LinkParser
I forked it purely for ease of installation. See INSTALL for detail.
=== Example Usage
require 'linkparser'
dict = LinkParser::Dictionary.new( :screen_width => 100 )
sent = dict.parse( "People use Ruby for all kinds of nifty things." )
# => #<LinkParser::Sentence:0xcf8eb "LEFT-WALL people use Ruby for all kinds
# of nifty things . RIGHT-WALL"/2 linkages/0 nulls>
sent.subject # => "people"
sent.verb # => "use"
sent.object # => "Ruby"
puts sent.constituent_tree_string
# =>
# (S (NP People)
# (VP use
# (NP Ruby)
# (PP for
# (NP (NP all kinds)
# (PP of
# (NP nifty things)))))
# .)
puts sent.diagram
# =>
