The latest draft description and dictionary of Sinampaiton is now available.

December 7, 2004

Two new Perl modules are now available:


IO::WithHeader and its subclasses allow you to read and write a file containing both a header and a body. The header and body may be changed without affecting the other. IO::WithHeader itself doesn't provide code to actually read and write a file's header, since there are so many different varieties of headers. Instead, it must be subclassed to provide the desired functionality. IO::WithHeader is distributed with two such subclasses, IO::WithHeader::YAML and IO::WithHeader::RFC822.

IO::YAML may be used to read and write YAML streams one document (i.e., one value) at a time.

Constructed languages

Information (not much yet) on the author's created languages, primarily Sinampaiton but also including some fragments of nonce languages whipped up to explore interesting facets of language.


The Free Repository of English Lexical Information (FRELI, pronounced "freely") is a list of some 50,000 English words with part of speech, frequency, and other simple lexical information. I'm currently working on a set of Perl modules to read, write, and process this data.
