NAME

make-lingua-identify-language - creates language modules for Lingua::Identify

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  make-lingua-identify-language Language-Tag Language-Name file1 [file2 ...]



or



  make-lingua-identify-language -d TAG1-LANGUAGE1/ [TAG2-LANGUAGE2/ ...]



or



  make-lingua-identify



DESCRIPTION

Creates language modules to be used by Lingua::Identify.

After creating the modules, you still have to install them.

Please note that this script is still at an early stage. Please do not even look at the code...

Without parameters, make-lingua-identify-language assumes mode -d and goes through all the directories in the current one. This is useful to be used in a directory where you something like this:



  .
  |-- en-english
  |   `-- english.txt
  |-- fr-french
  |   `-- french1.txt
  |   `-- french2.txt
  `-- pt-portuguese
      `-- portuguese.txt



    OPTIONS

    -d

Directory mode. Each parameter passed should be a directory whose name must be of the form tag-name (e.g., en-english/ ). Each of the directories passed should contain text files that can be used to train Lingua::Identify.

    -D

Debug mode. Only for development.

    -h

Display help and exit.

    -v

Show version and exit.

    -verbose

Verbose mode.

-locale=CW<locale>

Set a specific locale. This way your text will be all lowercased before analysed.

META.yml

META.yml files are not parsed as other files, they are ignored.

In directory mode (-d switch), META.yml files are checked for info on languages codes and sets.

Here’s a simple META.yml for you to put in your directories:



  two_letter_code:   pt
  three_letter_code: por
  sets:
    spoken_in_portugal



With that, the language will be identified with the two letter code pt or the three letter code por; it will also be in the set :spoken_in_portugal.

CONTRIBUTING WITH NEW LANGUAGES

Please do not contribute with modules you made yourself. It’s easier to contribute with unprocessed text, because that allows for new versions of Lingua::Identify not having to drop languages down in case I can’t contact you by that time.

Use make-lingua-identify-language to create a new module for your own personal use, if you must, but try to contribute with unprocessed text rather than those modules.
