Simplified Chinese Word Segmentation
This is a perl version of simplified Chinese word segmentation.
The algorithm for this segmenter is to search the longest word at each point from both left and right directions, and choose the one with higher frequency product.
The original program is from the CPAN module LinguaZHWordSegment http//search.cpan.org/~chenyr/ I did the follwing changes 1 make the interface object oriented; 2 make the internal string into utf8; 3 using sogou’s dictionary http//www.sogou.com/labs/dl/w.html as the default dictionary.
