NAME
    "Text::Corpus::Inspec" - Interface to Inspec abstracts corpus.

SYNOPSIS
      use Text::Corpus::Inspec;
      use Data::Dump qw(dump);
      use Log::Log4perl qw(:easy);
      Log::Log4perl->easy_init ($INFO);
      my $corpus = Text::Corpus::Inspec->new (corpusDirectory => $corpusDirectory);
      dump $corpus->getTotalDocuments;

DESCRIPTION
    "Text::Corpus::Inspec" provides a simple interface for accessing the
    documents in the Inspec corpus.

    The categories, description, title, etc... of a specified document are
    accessed using Text::Corpus::Inspec::Document. Also, all errors and
    warnings are logged using Log::Log4perl, which should be initialized.

CONSTRUCTOR
  "new"
    The method "new" creates an instance of the "Text::Corpus::Inspec" class
    with the following parameters:

    "corpusDirectory"
         corpusDirectory => '...'

        "corpusDirectory" is the path to the top most directory of the
        corpus documents. It is the path to the directory containing the
        sub-directories named "Test", "Training", and "Validation" of the
        corpus and is needed to locate all the documents in the corpus. If
        it is not defined, then the enviroment variable
        "TEXT_CORPUS_INSPEC_CORPUSDIRECTORY" is used if it is defined. A
        message is logged and an exception is thrown if no directory is
        specified.

METHODS
  "getDocument"
      getDocument (index => $index, subsetType => $subsetType)

    "getDocument" returns a Text::Corpus::Inspec::Document object of the
    document with the specified "index" and "subsetType", which is either
    'all', 'test', 'training', or 'validation'; the default is 'all'.

      getDocument (uri => $uri)

    "getDocument" returns a Text::Corpus::Inspec::Document object of the
    document with specified "uri".

  "getTotalDocuments"
      getTotalDocuments (subsetType => 'all')

    "getTotalDocuments" returns the total number of documents in the
    specified subset-type of the corpus; which is either 'all', 'test',
    'training', or 'validation'; the default is 'all'. The index to the
    documents in each subset ranges from zero to
    "getTotalDocuments(subsetType => $subsetType) - 1".

  "test"
     test ()

    "test" does tests to ensure the documents in the corpus are accessible
    and can be parsed. It returns true if all tests pass, otherwise a
    description of the test that failed is logged using Log::Log4perl and
    false is returned.

    For example:

      use Text::Corpus::Inspec;
      use Data::Dump qw(dump);
      use Log::Log4perl qw(:easy);
      Log::Log4perl->easy_init ($INFO);
      my $corpus = Text::Corpus::Inspec->new (corpusDirectory => $corpusDirectory);
      dump $corpus->test;

EXAMPLES
    The example below will print out all the information for each document
    in the corpus.

      use Text::Corpus::Inspec;
      use Data::Dump qw(dump);
      use Log::Log4perl qw(:easy);
      Log::Log4perl->easy_init ($INFO);
      my $corpus = Text::Corpus::Inspec->new (corpusDirectory => $corpusDirectory);
      my $totalDocuments = $corpus->getTotalDocuments ();
      for (my $i = 0; $i < $totalDocuments; $i++)
      {
        eval
        {
          my $document = $corpus->getDocument (index => $i);
          my %documentInfo;
          $documentInfo{title} = $document->getTitle ();
          $documentInfo{body} = $document->getBody ();
          $documentInfo{content} = $document->getContent ();
          $documentInfo{categories} = $document->getCategories ();
          $documentInfo{uri} = $document->getUri ();
          dump \%documentInfo;
        };
      }

INSTALLATION
    To install the module set the environment variable
    "TEXT_CORPUS_INSPEC_CORPUSDIRECTORY" to the path of the Inspec corpus
    and run the following commands:

      perl Makefile.PL
      make
      make test
      make install

    If you are on a windows box you should use 'nmake' rather than 'make'.

    The module will install if "TEXT_CORPUS_INSPEC_CORPUSDIRECTORY" is not
    defined, but little testing will be performed. After the Inspec corpus
    is installed testing of the module can be performed by running:

      use Text::Corpus::Inspec;
      use Data::Dump qw(dump);
      use Log::Log4perl qw(:easy);
      Log::Log4perl->easy_init ($INFO);
      my $corpus = Text::Corpus::Inspec->new (corpusDirectory => $corpusDirectory);
      dump $corpus->test;
