        Subject: PhiloLine: Similar Passage Detection for PhiloLogic

Hi all,

We are pleased to announce the alpha release of PhiloLine, an
extension to  PhiloLogic designed identify similar passages in
relatively large collections of documents.  PhiloLine is based on a
simple implementation of a sequence alignment algorithm, a generalized
technique used in bioinformatics and other disciplines.  This
implementation performs an all-to-all comparison of a set of documents
loaded in PhiloLogic and generates results which can be linked to and
from the database.  PhiloLine is an experimental implement of our more
generalized PAIR (Pairwise Alignment for Intertextual Relations)
implementation which functions without PhiloLogic bindings to be
released in Winter 2009.

Source code, documentationand release notes, links to relevant papers,
and a slide show discussing sequence alignment in digital humanities
are available at:

     http://code.google.com/p/text-pair/

PhiloLine, like PhiloLogic and PhiloMine, are open source systems.
Please feel free to contact us at the address listed on the site with
your comments, complaints, bug reports (yes, there will be bugs),
suggestions and, always most  gratefully accepted, code.

Best regards,

FAQ answer: My mother still calls me Marky Maypo or just Maypo, hence
the handle. :-)
