The (futile?) quest for an automatic paraphrase engineby dimar (Curate)
|on May 16, 2004 at 23:44 UTC||Need Help??|
dimar has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
With a population of more than 10.2 million, Seoul, the capital of South Korea, is the world’s largest city in terms of population. Sao Paulo(Brazil), the world’s second-largest city, has a population of just over ten million. Three other cities, Bombay(India), Jakarta(Indonesia) and Karachi(Pakistan), have grown to more than nine million people.
Seoul has a population of more than 10.2 million.

The guy was reluctant to ask this question, but WTH, someone might be able to help with a breakthrough.
