  forPN( {t=>"double"},
         sub{my ($pn, $contex)=@_;... }, sub{...} ) ;

Functions related to ProperNames dictionary ^

new

Creates a new ProperNames dictionary

is_surname

Thie method checks if a name exists in the Names dictionary as a Surname.

Detecting Proper Names ^

forPN

Substitutes all Proper Names found on STDIN by the result of calling a function <f> with arguments ($propername,$context). The result is sent to STDOUT.

Usage:

   forPN({options...}, sub{ propername processor...})

Optionally you can define input or output files:

   forPN({in=> "inputfile", out => "outputfile" }, sub{...})

Also, <{t = "double"}>> helps to treat in a special way names after punctuation (".", etc). With this options you must provide 2 functions: one for standard Proper Names and one for names after punctuation.

   forPN({t=>"double"}, sub{...}, sub{...})

You can also define record paragraph separator

   forPN({sep=>"\n", t=>"normal"}, sub{...}) ## each line is a par.
   forPN({sep=>""}, sub{...})                ## par. empty lines

forPNstring

   forPNstring( $funref, "textstring" [, regSeparator] )>

Substitutes all propername by funref(propername) in the text string.

printPNstring

   printPNstring("oco")

getPN

printPN

  printPN("oco")

  printPN  - extrai os nomes próprios dum texto.
   -comp    junta certos nomes: Fermat + Pierre de Fermat = (Pierre de) Fermat
   -prof
   -e       "Sebastiao e Silva" "e" como pertencente a PN
   -em      "em Famalicão" como pertencente a PN
