./textproc/link-grammar, Syntactic parsing library

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 5.8.1, Package name: link-grammar-5.8.1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The Link Grammar Parser is a syntactic parser of English, Russian,
Arabic and Persian (and other languages as well), based on Link
Grammar, an original theory of syntax and morphology. Given a
sentence, the system assigns to it a syntactic structure, which
consists of a set of labelled links connecting pairs of words. The
parser also produces a "constituent" (HPSG style phrase tree)
representation of a sentence (showing noun phrases, verb phrases,
etc.). The RelEx extension provides Stanford-style Dependency
Grammar output.

Log message:
link-grammar: fix macOS and SunOS builds

A vestigial reference to removed functionality was causing a failure to
link on macOS and SunOS. Separately, an expectation about the presence
of strtod_l(3) was causing a build failure on SunOS.

all: migrate homepages from http to https

pkglint -r --network --only "migrate"

As a side-effect of migrating the homepages, pkglint also fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines. These and the new homepages have been
checked manually.

Log message:
link-grammar: explicitly disable Python bindings

In some OS environments (e.g., some Linux distros), Python in the base
userland was being detected, and bindings were generated, causing a
build failure due to PLIST mismatch. (Python bindings aren't required
for this package's intended dependencies in pkgsrc, and so aren't
meant to be included. If someone wants them, they should add them as a
non-default option.)
