Text analyser for corpus linguistics
tacl is a tool for performing basic text analysis on the texts available from the Chinese Buddhist Electronic Text Association (CBETA). It is largely generic, however, and can operate with minor modifications on other corpora.
Using Python 3 (minimum version 3.3), either run pip install tacl or download the code manually and run python setup.py install. Requires SQLite, the biopython suite of tools, the lxml XML library, and the pandas data analysis library. On all platforms the dependencies are installed automatically when tacl is installed with pip.
Note however that on Windows (and perhaps Mac OS X) it is very likely that the dependencies that have non-Python components will not build due to a missing compiler. In such a case, follow the instructions at https://github.com/ajenhl/tacl/wiki/Installation
Run tacl -h for a listing of available subcommands, and tacl <subcommand> -h for help on a specific subcommand.
