My heartfelt thanks to Adam Kilgarriff for his work on the BNC (British National Corpus) which forms the basis for the word.db. I have added and massaged it a bit, but I would never have gotten this far without it. The BNC can be visited at http://www.itri.brighton.ac.uc/~Adam.Kilgarriff/bnc-readme.html.
Harvey uses algorithms AND data to work. The program looks for a file called 'system.dat' in the startup directory. In this file it looks for a line that reads 'path=your_path', where your_path is the directory where the data resides.
Install modules in this order, Word.pm, Verb.pm and then Harvey.pm. Place the data files (noun.txt, verb.txt, adjective.txt, adverb.txt, word.txt and word.db) in a data directory and create a file called system.dat in your working directory to point to the data (see DATA LOCATION).
