alpinocorpus is a C++ library for creating, quering, and reading Alpino corpora. The library also includes a plain C wrapper, which is convenient for writing bindings for other languages, and a handful of command-line utilities that replicate the functionality of Dact.
alpinocorpus and its dependencies can be installed through Homebrew:
brew tap rug-compling/dact brew install alpinocorpus
Afterwards, you will have all of alpinocorpus available, including manual pages. If you want the latest development version, use:
brew install --HEAD alpinocorpus
To install alpinocorpus on Ubuntu, use the Dact PPA:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danieldk/dact sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install libalpino-corpus-dev alpino-corpus-util
Believe me, you don't want to go through this! Buy a Mac or run Ubuntu in a virtual machine. We may include the command-line utilities in a future release of Dact.
