alpinocorpus-python

This module provides Python bindings for the alpinocorpus library. The bindings work for Python 2.x and 3.x.

Bugs/questions? Please send them to Daniël de Kok <me@danieldk.eu>

Compilation

The binding is installed in three simple steps:

python setup.py config
python setup.py build
python setup.py install

Usage

The Python binding for alpinocorpus can be loaded with a simple import:

import alpinocorpus

The CorpusReader class is used to read and query corpora. A corpus is opened using the constructor of CorpusReader:

c = alpinocorpus.CorpusReader("mycorpus.dact")

A query can be executed using the query method:

q = c.query("//node[@root='loop']")

The resulting query object is iterable, and can be used to print the name or contents of a match:

for entry in q:
  print(entry.name())
  print(entry.contents())

An entry can be read from the corpus using the read method of CorpusReader:

c.read("1.xml")

Or if you want to read, while marking nodes that are selected using a query:

c.readMarkQueries("1.xml", [alpinocorpus.MarkerQuery(query, "active", "1")]

Server

The server in examples/ requires the web.py framework, which can be installed with:

easy_install web.py
