Text-Garden is a software library and collection of software tools for solving large scale tasks dealing with structured, semi-structured and unstructured data - emphasis of functionality is on dealing with text. It can be used in various ways covering research and applicative scenarios. Text-Garden is being used by several institutions including British Telecom, Carnegie Mellon University, Microsoft Research, Cycorp.

Some history

The development of Text-Garden started in 1996 as a set of C++ classes for dealing with text in order to perform text-learning tasks. There were two people working on it until 2002 and it was developed slowly according to the academic tasks being on our agenda. From 2003 on Text-Garden became central software platform in our research group at J. Stefan Institute. Text-Garden is used in a number of research and applicative projects (~10 people contributing).
