Re: [seul-edu] Re: perl or......

This is not exactly what I brought up but it is interesting. The
compilation of word lists and indexes is quite important to scholars and 
educators now. The scripts are in Perl. It just seemed to me that what 
he did was interesting and should be of interest to others. So I asked 
him if he minded releasing the code. He said he would be happy to 
release it to anyone. I couldn't do anything with it as I couldn't write 
a single line of code in any language.
