Text Processing

Text processing in CorText is divided in two families whether you are dealing with raw textual content or categorial data.

Lexical Extraction  and Term Indexer scripts are deemed to be used with textual content (made of paragraphs or full sentence)

List Builder and List Indexer are rather dedicated to working with data which are single words or expressions like a name, an institution, or any category-like information.

In both cases the Csv Viewer and Editor is instrumental to manage extracted lists.
