Snowball stemming algorithms, development kit

 Snowball provides access to efficient algorithms for calculating a
 "stemmed" form of a word. This is a form with most of the common
 morphological endings removed; hopefully representing a common
 linguistic base form. This is most useful in building search engines
 and information retrieval software; for example, a search with stemming
 enabled should be able to find a document containing "cycling" given the
 query "cycles".
 Snowball provides algorithms for several (mainly European) languages.
 It also provides access to the classic Porter stemming algorithm for
 English: although this has been superseded by an improved algorithm, the
 original algorithm may be of interest to information retrieval
 researchers wishing to reproduce results of earlier experiments.
 This package contains the static library and header files used in development.
