creating a text pattern recognition tool
« on: August 28, 2017, 12:01:21 PM »
I am new to hyper next studio.
Wish to know if there is any way I can build a text pattern recognition tool using hypernext.
Almost like a fuzzy text search.

Thanks in advance.

Welcome to HyperNext and our forums.

Yes, you could use HN to do a fuzzy search on text data as it has quite comprehensive string handling functionality.

It has over 30 string functions/procedures and these are documented in the String Handling section of both the Language Reference PDF and InBuilt Help.

Chapter 5 of the QuickStart PDF explains about text and variables in HN.

One thing, HN has quite simple commands whereas most languages can have complex commands built up from many terms. So perhaps it might be  too verbose for many programmers.

Also the HN language is interpreted, therefore its runtime execution is not as fast as a fully compiled language although with the speed of modern processors it is still very fast. This could be an issue for you.

So perhaps take a look at the String Handling in the Language Reference, and if that looks okay then look at the QuickStart guide so you could start building your project.

I am sorry but I do not have time to answer questions by PM or email.
