Description: Clairlib, The Clair Library

version 0.953 is now available


The University of Michigan's CLAIR (Computational Linguistics And
Information Retrieval) group is happy to present the second release of
Clairlib, the Clair library.

The Clair library is intended to simplify a number of generic tasks in
Natural Language Processing (NLP) and Information Retrieval (IR), with
additional applications to Bioinformatics and Political Science. Its
architecture also allows for external software to be plugged in with very
little effort.

Clairlib features a tiered architecture with a core shared by all
applications and subject-specific libraries (currently in political science
and bioinformatics).
