Dokumenthantering VT98

This is an overview of the course Text Processing (in Swedish: Dokumenthantering) that will be taught in the Winter term of 1998 at the Department of Linguistics at the University of Uppsala.

The goal of the course is to give the students an introduction in document processing from the perspective of someone that has to manage a large collection of documents from different sources. An additional goal is to give the students an introduction to the programming language Perl.

You can take a look at a summary of the results of the evaluation forms of the course: the midcourse evaluation. The final evaluation will be held in the second week of March.

The students will make different small practical exercises and one large practical exercise. For each of the exercises they will receive a grade between 0 and 10. In order to pass the course the student will have to obtain an average grade of at least 6.0 for the small exercises and at least 6.0 for the large exercise. In order to get VG the student will have to obtain the required grades for passing the course and obtain a mark for the large exercise of 9.0 or higher.

Literature

Literature for this course will be taken from different sources. The most important are:

Neither Wall 92 nor Witten 94 is compulsory. Note: there are many other good Perl books beside Wall 92.
