I have used C++ based tools on linux for Japanese morphological
analysis, such as chasen. Such tools are critical in Japanese and are
used in indexing for a search engine ...
While I use Chasen
-- which has by the way some rudimentary
Perl bindings -- almost everday I am curious wether Chasen is
really a good choice for a search engine? Thinking about speed,
the difficulties to update Chasen's
dictionary and to
tune it for specific (topic) domains it
would be nice to hear more about your experience with Chasen
For simple search engines I usually prefer a simple longest
algorithm as provided by
my own tools.
