DESCRIPTION

Word2vec::Xmltow2v is a XML-to-text module which converts Medline XML article title and abstract data, given a date range, into a plain text corpus for use with Word2vec::Interface. It also "compoundifies" during text corpus compilation given a compound word file.

Input:

 $debugLog                    -> Instructs module to print debug statements to the console. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $writeLog                    -> Instructs module to print debug statements to a log file. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $storeTitle                  -> Instructs module to store Medline article titles during text corpus compilation. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $storeAbstract               -> Instructs module to store Medline article abstracts during text corpus compilation. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $quickParse                  -> Instructs module to utilize quick XML parsing Functions for known Medline article title and abstract tags. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $compoundifyText             -> Instructs module to compoundify text on the fly given a compound word file. This is automatically set
                                 when reading the compound word file to memory regardless of user setting. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $storeAsSentencePerLine      -> Instructs module to store parsed medline data as a length single sentence or separate sentences on new lines based on period character. (1 = True / 0 = False)
 $numOfThreads                -> Specifies the number of worker threads which parse Medline XML files simultaneously to create the text corpus.
                                 This speeds up text corpus generation by the number of physical cores present an a given machine. (Positive integer value)
                                 ie. Using four threads of a Intel i7 core machine speeds up text corpus generation roughly four times faster than being single threaded.
 $workingDir                  -> Specifies the current working directory. (String)
 $savePath                    -> Specifies the save path for text corpus generation. (String)
 $beginDate                   -> Specifies the beginning date range for Medline article text corpus composition. (Format: XX/XX/XXXX)
 $endDate                     -> Specifies the ending date range for Medline article text corpus composition. (Format: XX/XX/XXXX)
 $xmlStringToParse            -> Storage location for the current Medline XML file in memory. (String)
 $textCorpusString            -> Temporary storage location for text corpus generation in memory. (String)
 $twigHandler                 -> XML::Twig object location.
 $parsedCount                 -> Number of parsed Medline articles during text corpus generation.
 $tempDate                    -> Temporary storage location for current Medline article date during text corpus compilation.
 $tempStr                     -> Temporary storage location for current Medline article title/abstract during text corpus compilation.
 $outputFileName              -> Output file path/name.
 $compoundWordAry             -> Storage location for compound words, used to compoundify text. (Array) <- Depreciated
 $compoundWordBST             -> Storage location for compound words, used to compoundify text. (Binary Search Tree) <- Supersedes '$compoundWordAry'
 $maxCompoundWordLength       -> Maximum number of words able to be compoundified in one phrase. ie "six_sea_snakes_were_sailing" = 5 compoundified words.
                                 The compounding algorithm will attempt to compoundify no more than this set value, even-though the compound word list could
                                 possibly contain larger compounded phrases.
 $overwriteExistingFile       -> Instructs the module to either overwrite any existing text corpus files or append to the existing file.

 Note: It is not recommended to specify all new() parameters, as it has not been thoroughly tested. Maximum recommended parameters to be specified include:
       "debugLog, writeLog, storeTitle, storeAbstract, quickParse, compoundifyText, numOfThreads, workingDir, savePath, beginDate, endDate"
