The WordNet::SenseRelate returns the value in the format "infer#v#5". To run my experiments I need to compare it with a value in the format "infer%2:31:01::".

1. Is there a function that takes sense key as input and returns the corresponding sense number? For example inputting "infer%2:31:01" should return "infer#v#5".

2. Can WordNet::SenseRelate  be configured to return the results in the format  "infer%2:31:01::" ?

Also can WordNet::SenseRelate  be configured for list of stopwords, special characters?
