- public class ExtractAbbrev
- extends java.lang.Object
The ExtractAbbrev class implements a simple algorithm for
extraction of abbreviations and their definitions from biomedical text.
Abbreviations (short forms) are extracted from the input file, and those abbreviations
for which a definition (long form) is found are printed out, along with that definition,
one per line.
A file consisting of short-form/long-form pairs (tab separated) can be specified
in tandem with the -testlist option for the purposes of evaluating the algorithm.
