The fullstop package

[Tags:bsd3, library, program, test]

FullStop splits texts into sentences, using some orthographical conventions (used in English and hopefully other languages).

It recognises certain punctuation characters as sentence delimiters (.?!) and handles some abbreviations such as Mr. and decimal numbers (eg. 4.2).

Note that this package is mostly a placeholder. I hope the Haskell/NLP communities will run with it and upload a more sophisticated (family of) segmenter(s) in its place. Patches (and new maintainers) would be greeted with delight!
