WordNet::vectorFile - Provides access to the word vectors database (used by the vector and vector_pairs WordNet::Similarity measures).
use WordNet::vectorFile; my ($dCount, $dims, $vecRef) = WordNet::vectorFile->readVectors($filename); WordNet::vectorFile->writeVectors($fname, $dCount, $dims, $vecRef);
This module provides a read/write interface into the word vectors data file. This module is used by WordNet::Similarity::vector and WordNet::Similarity::vector_pairs as an interface into the word vectors database. This module abstracts the format of the data file away from the user.
This method reads in a word vectors file, and returns the document count, the words corresponding to the dimensions of the vectors, and a reference to an array containing the list of word vectors.
Parameters: $file -- the file name of the word vectors file.
Returns: ($dCount, $dims, $vecRef)
This method writes out a list of word vectors to the word vectors file.
Parameters: $fname, $dCount, $dims, $vecRef
