( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Update 2:

Here is a first simple solution. Anybody needs a starting point:

#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use feature qw(say); use Data::Dump; use Lingua::Stem qw(stem); undef $/; my $text = <DATA>; say $text; $text = lc $text; $text =~ s/\n+/ /g; say $text; $text =~ s/[:;'!?.,]+//g; say $text; my @words = split / /, $text; dd \@words; Lingua::Stem::set_locale('de'); say Lingua::Stem::get_locale; my $stems = stem(@words); dd $stems; my %vocabulary = map {$_ => 1} @$stems; dd \%vocabulary; say scalar keys %vocabulary; __DATA__ Ich Bin Der Geist, Der Stets Verneint! Und Das Mit Recht; denn alles, was entsteht, Ist wert, daß es zugrunde geht; Drum besser wär's, daß nichts entstünde. So ist denn alles, was ihr Sünde, Zerstörung, kurz, das Böse nennt, Mein eigentliches Element.

It isn't so easy as one might think: Simply counting the words with wc doesn't return the vocabulary. And Lingua::Stem thinks that Ist and ist are different stems for example. And how to filter out the real text from sources which contain a preface, index, bla? And so on.

Some may ask why i waste my time with this issue. It has to do with politics. As this isn't a forum about politics i skip the details.

I was a little bit inspired by what Jill Lepore analogously wrote about facts in her splendid book These Truths: A History of the United States about facts: "Show me yours and i'll show you mine." Basically the same game that we played with our cousins when we were nasty little boys. Discussion later.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
