Subject Re: Question about PorterStemFilter class
Date Thu, 04 Nov 2004 04:16:26 GMT
The original (Porter) version did indeed not correspond to any current 
Java coding standards -- because (a) it was translated to Java before 
such standards emerged (JDK 1.0) and (b) translated from another 
language.  I left these as is, rather than attempt to clean them up.
