NAME

HTML::WordTagRatio::ExponentialRatio - Perl module for determining the ratio of words to tags in a range of tokens in an HTML document.

SYNOPSIS

  use HTML::WordTagRatio::ExponentialRatio;
  use HTML::Content::HTMLTokenizer;
  use HTML::Content::ContentExtractor;
  
  my $tokenizer = new HTML::Content::HTMLTokenizer('TAG','WORD');
  
  open(HTML,"index.html");
  my $doc = join("",<HTML>);
  close(HTML);
  
  my ($word_count_arr_ref,$tag_count_arr_ref,$token_type_arr_ref,$token_hash_ref) = $tokenizer->Tokenize($doc);
  
  my $ratio = new HTML::WordTagRatio::ExponentialRatio();
    
  my $value = $ratio->RangeValue(0, @$word_count_arr_ref, 
                                $word_count_arr_ref, $tag_count_arr_ref);
                                

DESCRIPTION

HTML::WordTagRatio::ExponentialRatio computes a ratio of Words to Tags for a given range. In psuedo code, the ratio is

exp(Words)/exp(Tags)

Methods

  • my $ratio = new HTML::WordTagRatio::ExponentialRatio()

    Initializes HTML::WordTagRatio::ExponentialRatio

  • my $value = $ratio->RangeValue($start, $end, \@WordCount, \@TagCount)

    $value is computed as follows:

            exp($WordCount[$end] - $WordCount[$start])/exp($TagCount[$end] - $TagCount[$start])
            

    $WordCount[$i] is the number of word tokens before or at the ith token in the input HTML document. $TagCount[$i] is the number of tag tokens before or at the ith token in the input HTML document.
