With version 0.4 it also support optional symbols, and it's getting to the point where I don't know each step of the proces from the top of my head. It's getting more and more complicated.</p><p>Fortunately, that complicity means also that it becomes more and more powerful!</p> muba 2007-02-17T00:18:04+00:00 journal Sound changes, third version http://use.perl.org/~muba/journal/32382?from=rss I just finished <a href="http://use.perl.org/~muba/journal/32374">writing</a> about how I released version 0.2 of the Versatile Sound Change Applier, and here's <a href="http://members.home.nl/par/vsca/vsca.htm">version 0.3</a> already - the things grows stronger and stronger. muba 2007-02-13T02:17:57+00:00 journal Versatile sound change applier http://use.perl.org/~muba/journal/32374?from=rss <p>Just a few days ago I released version 0.1 of this program that I made for a friend.</p><p>Versatile Sound Change Applier, or VSCA for short, is a program that allows you to see what a language will look like after it has gone through a number of sound changes. All you have to do is feed the program a list of words, and a list of sound change rules. The output consists of the new words.</p><p>SCAs are no uncommon programs among linguistics, however, none of them met the needs of my friend. VSCA does, and he has said it's even more flexible than what he aimed for!</p><p>After it's been tested a bit, I'm quite confident v0.1 did not have any bugs or any unexpected undocumented behaviour. So it was time to add some features and to improve others.</p><p>Now. without furder ado: <a href="http://members.home.nl/par/vsca/vsca.htm">VSCA 0.2</a> </p> muba 2007-02-12T03:16:29+00:00 journal
