Git repositories

Connect to an IRC server, write messages on stdout, say what is given on stdin. Useful to write bots. C program, using libircclient. See the README file or the blogpost. GPLv3 licensed.
A French poetry validator for metric, rhyme and rhyme gender. You can also get the code. GPLv3 licensed.
A French rhyme dictionary. You can also get the code and have a look at the README. GPLv3 licensed.
A system to find out whether the initial 'h' in a French word is aspirated or not. Can be used as a standalone program or an a Python module. No big dictionary of exceptions, but rules learned from a corpus and stored as a trie: compact, fast, and reasonable for unseen words. See the README file or the blogpost. MIT licensed.
A tool to split natural language text in chunks at reasonable language boundaries. The program takes as argument a maximal size for chunks, reads stdin and produces chunks smaller than the maximal size on stdout. Not NLP research but the obvious heuristics (paragraphs, then sentences, then words, with some refinements). Someone had to write this. See the README file. MIT licensed.
A system to infer the last few phonemes of a French word. Not very clever.
