Sorry about the late reply. The perl script is run from the command-line, taking input from STDIN and outputing to STDOUT under Unix/Linux/Cygwin. I just finished version 0.7, which natively supports input and output to & from UTF-8, CP-1256 (aka. Windows-1256), and ISIRI 3342. The default input & output is romanized text. This version also fixes some bugs (eg. --root). A tentative name for the stemmer is "Perstem". If any of you think of a better name, please let me know. Also, I'll try to get the web page version updated sometime soon, which hopefully will fix the problem that Behdad mentioned. http://students.cs.byu.edu/~jonsafar/perstem Sample usage might include (after removing the single quotation marks around commands): Input a UTF-8 webpage and output to CP-1256, preserving only the roots of words, and remove HTML tags: 'perstem -i utf8 -o cp1256 --root --noroman < my_utf8.html > my_cp1256.txt' Input romanized sentence from the command-line, output to UTF-8, show the morphological links, remove short vowels, and tokenize punctuation: 'echo "man ketAb-hAie tu rA nemi-binam." | perstem -o utf8 --links --unvowel --tokenize > my_utf8.txt' For a full list of commands, try the -h or --help option. The stemmer and syntax parser were well recieved last week at the First International Conference on Aspects of Iranian Linguistics in Leipzig, Germany.
