Ngram Statistics Package (ngram) version 1.09 released!

We are happy to announce the release of version 1.09 of the Ngram Statistics Package. This is a bug fix release. We've made some adjustments in how our test cases are called to avoid problems on Windows systems. There are also a few tests cases that fail on 64 bit architectures, so those have been modified to account for arithmetic variations. Updating to this version is probably only necessary if you are experiencing failures with 'make test'.

ngram (Text-NSP) version 1.01 released!

The Ngram Statistics Package (known as ngram on sourceforge and Text-NSP on CPAN) has undergone a major transformation in recent releases. The measures of association that it supports have been rewritten in a more hierarchical manner, to reduce code duplication and to make it easier for users to write and maintain their own measures. The most current version of ngram is now 1.01 - please make sure you that you are using this version, as it is a significant improvement upon all past versions.

Text Mining with ngram! (version 0.67 now available)

We are happy to announce the availability of version 0.67 of the Ngram Statistics Package.
There are two interesting enhancements included in this version:

First, we have provided a utility program (huge-count.pl) that allows for
bigrams to be counted in very large corpora. We have run it on hundreds of millions of words in less than an hour using a "typical" desktop computer.
The method it employs is simple - it breaks the corpora into some number of pieces, counts each piece, and then combines them together.... read more
