RELATED LIBRARIES

  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.

DATA LOCATION

  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.  

INSTALATION NOTES

  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).
