NAME

similarity_server.pl - [Web] The backend WordNet::Similarity server for the Web Interface

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

Usage: similarity_server.pl [--port PORTNUMBER] [--logfile LOGFILE] [--maxchild NUM] [--stoplist STOPFILE]
| --help
| --version

DESCRIPTION

This script implements the backend of the web interface for WordNet::Similarity.

This script listens to a port waiting for a request form similarity.cgi or wps.cgi. The client script sends a message to this script as series of queries (see QUERY FORMAT). After all the queries, the client sends a message containing only CRLF (carriage-return line-feed, or \015\012).

The server (this script) responds with the results (see MESSAGE FORMAT) terminated by a message containing only CRLF.

    Example:



 Client:
 g car#n#1CRLF
 CRLF

 Sever responds:
 g car#n#1 4-wheeled motor vehicle; usually propelled by an internal
 combustion engine; "he needs a car to get to work"CRLF
 CRLF

 word2

 g <word><CRLF> - server will return the gloss for each synset to which
 word belongs

 r <wps1> <wps2> <measure> <etc...><CRLF> - server will return the
 relatedness of wps1 and wps2 using measure.

 v <CRLF> - get version information



MESSAGE FORMAT

The messages sent from this server will be in the following formats:



 ! <msg><CRLF> - indicates an error or warning

 g <wps> <gloss><CRLF> - the gloss of wps

 r <wps1> <wps2> <score><CRFL> - the relatedness score of wps1 and wps2

 t <msg><CRLF> - the trace output for the previous relatedness score
