Originally, readme file is in Japanese.

To output the selected (as below) internal data to file:

    set Log = filename 

If the file exists, append mode is used.

To output using stderr:

    set Log = CONSOLE

To disable output:

    set Log = NO

Slots are as follows:

    Log.conf : configrations of ssm.conf
    Log.text : input text
    Log.arrangedText : arranged input text
    Log.chasen : analysis result of chasen
    Log.tag : tag lists (CONTEXT, SPELL is not included)
    Log.phoneme : phoneme information
    Log.mora : mora information
    Log.morph : morphological analysis information
    Log.aphrase : accent phrase information
    Log.breath : breath paragraphic information
    Log.sentence : sentence information

The default value is NO (output is disabled).

To enable output log for 'chasen' slot:

    set Log.chasen = YES


Mac OS X suport

since 2010-11-14

using Mac OS X 10.6.5 (64bit).



Binary version of Unidic is compatible with 32bit binary of chasen.

MacPorts version of chasen is 64bit binary.

Using terminal:

$ sudo mkdir -p /opt/local/bin/portslocation/dports/chasen $ cd /opt/local/bin/portslocation/dports/chasen

$ sudo port install chasen  

if not installed, darts and nkf are also fetched and installed.

Due to historical reasons, the default encoding of ChaSen is set to EUC-JP.
If you'd like to handle text files written in UTF-8 or Shift_JIS, you may use -r and -i options.

  UTF-8)     chasen -r /opt/local/etc/chasenrc-UTF-8 -i w <input>
  Shift_JIS) chasen -r /opt/local/etc/chasenrc-Shift_JIS -i s <input>
$ file /opt/local/bin/chasen
/opt/local/bin/chasen: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
$ echo "123" | /opt/local/bin/chasen | nkf -w
1	イチ	1	名詞-数		
2	ニ	2	名詞-数		
3	サン	3	名詞-数		

nkf -w converts output (EUC-JP) to Terminal default (UTF-8).

  • at this time, ipadic-2.7.0 is used with chasen.
  • if you want to remove chasen: sudo port -f uninstall chasen

chaone + unidic

  • (Japanese pages, user registration required)
  • download 1: chaone-1.3.3.tar.gz
  • download 2: unidic-chasen1312src.tar.gz (use source. binary version is for 32bit chasen)

gtalk + speakers

uncompress and compile

$ cd
$ cd code
$ pwd
$ tar xvfz ~/Downloads/unidic-chasen1312src.tar.gz 
$ tar xvfz ~/Downloads/chaone-1.3.3.tar.gz 
$ tar xvfz ~/Downloads/gtalk-090225.tar.gz.gz

building unidic for x64

seems easier to use default (UTF-8 version) of unidic, rather than to make EUC-JP version of unidic.

$ cd unidic-chasen1312src
$ ./configure
$ make
/opt/local/lib/chasen/makemat -i w
parsing grammar.cha
parsing cforms.cha
parsing ctypes.cha
parsing connect.cha
table size: 9767
lines: ......................

modify chasenrc:

;(GRAMMAR ./dic)

or make symbolic link:

$ ln -s . dic

test chasen using unidic:

$ echo "123" | chasen -r chasenrc 
1       イッ    名詞-数詞                       lForm="イチ" lemma="一" orthBase="1" pronBase="イッ" kanaBase="イッ" formBase="イチ" goshu="漢" iConType="N1" fType="チ促" fForm="促音形" aType="2" aConType="C3"

rename the directory:

$ cd ..
$ mv unidic-chasen1312src unidic-chasen1312_utf8-x64

building chaone

$ cd chaone-1.3.3

$ make
$ sudo port install libxml
$ sudo port install libxml2

copy to /usr/local (“sudo make install” does not work??):

$ sudo mkdir /usr/local/chaone
$ sudo cp *.xml *.xsl /usr/local/chaone/

now /usr/local/bin/chaone works.
