NAME ^

config.pod - listing of configuration options, and configuration file format.

SYNOPSIS ^

Description of all known configuration options, and configuration file format.

DESCRIPTION ^

The following is a list of options supported by the WordNet::SenseRelate::TargetWord modules. This is intended to serve as a "master list" of options so that descriptions can be copied from here and pasted into the documentation for specific modules.

WordNet::SenseRelate::Preprocess::Compounds

No configuration options.

WordNet::SenseRelate::Context::NearestWords

windowstop=FILENAME FILENAME specifies a list of stop words which should be ignored during context selection.

windowsize=N N is an integer that specifies the size of the window (default is 5).

contextpos=<POS> POS specifies the part-of-speech ('n', 'v', 'a' or 'r') to which the context words should be restricted.

WordNet::SenseRelate::Algorithm::Local

measure=MODULENAME MODULENAME is the name of the semantic relatedness module that will be used by the local disambiguation algorithm to compute the relatedness of word senses.

measureconfig=FILENAME FILENAME is the name of the cofiguration file that will be used to initialize the semantic relatedness module.

WordNet::SenseRelate::Algorithm::Global

measure=MODULENAME MODULENAME is the name of the semantic relatedness module that will be used by the local disambiguation algorithm to compute the relatedness of word senses.

measureconfig=FILENAME FILENAME is the name of the cofiguration file that will be used to initialize the semantic relatedness module.

WordNet::SenseRelate::Algorithm::SenseOne

No configuration options

WordNet::SenseRelate::Algorithm::Random

No configuration options.

CONFIGURATION FILE FORMAT ^

A configuration file can be passed to both, disamb.pl as well as to disamb-gui.pl in order to set up the configuration parameters for the modules. The format of this file is specified in this section.

The configuration file must start with a header, which is the string "WordNet::SenseRelate::TargetWord" on the first byte of the first line of the file.

It consists of a number of sections. Each section contains a list of modules for that section, along with the configuration options for the modules.

A section starts with the string

  [SECTION:section_name]

A new section header indicates the end of the previous section. The utilies in this package recognize four types of sections:

  [SECTION:PREPROCESS]

  [SECTION:CONTEXT]

  [SECTION:POSTPROCESS]

  [SECTION:ALGORITHM]

Any other section will be ignored by the program, without warning. Each of the sections is used to specify the list of modules for that section. A module is specified by [START modname] and [END] tags appearing on separate lines.

Configuration parameters for the module appear on separate lines in between the start and end tags as PARAMETER=VALUE pairs.

Example config file:

WordNet::SenseRelate::TargetWord

[SECTION:PREPROCESS]

[START WordNet::SenseRelate::Preprocess::Compounds]

[END]

[SECTION:CONTEXT]

[START WordNet::SenseRelate::Context::NearestWords]

windowsize=5

windowstop=/home/sid/window-stop.txt

[END]

[SECTION:POSTPROCESS]

[SECTION:ALGORITHM]

[START WordNet::SenseRelate::Algorithm::Local]

[END]

The above config file has four sections -- PREPROCESS, CONTEXT, POSTPROCESS and ALGORITHM. The PREPROCESS section contains a single module for compound detection, and has no config parameters. The CONTEXT section lists one module (NearestWords), with parameters windowsize and windowstop. There are no modules listed in the POSTPROCESS section. The ALGORITHM section lists the Local disambiguation algorithm module, also with no config parameters.
