Restructuring PC-Kimmo output
  • Austonesian language engines: Tagalog, Cebuano, Indonesian
  • XML output in KOML format
Kimmo to XML
  • KimXM (Visual Basic .NET 2003)
    • Purpose: to structure the recognition results of PC-Kimmo into an XML data structure.
      • Used string matching and replace functions
      • Regular expressions
      • XML special character checking functions
  • Benefits
    • This system offers a suitable output mechanism assuring compatibility across linguistic research and search engine platforms along with an encoding method that makes such sharability possible.
  • Kimmo Output Markup Language (KOML)
    • Constrained using a DTD (koml v1.dtd)
