Bindings to the Snowball library. http://hub.darcs.net/dag/snowball

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
The Snowball library is used to compute the stems of words in natural languages.
Compared to the older stemmer package, this one:
Correctly handles unicode without relying on the system locale
Takes greater care to avoid memory leaks and to be thread safe
Uses Text rather than String
Gets rid of the need for
stemWordsby using rewrite rules to make
Includes a more recent release of Snowball
Attempts to comply with the Snowball licensing terms
SafeHaskellwhen available and is otherwise
Comes with a test suite
However, although this code is written from scratch, it is heavily modeled after the code of the "stemmer" package.
