Snowball provides algorithms for several (mainly European) languages. It also provides access to the classic Porter stemming algorithm for English: although this has been superseded by an improved algorithm, the original algorithm may be of interest to information retrieval researchers wishing to reproduce results of earlier experiments.

Things to do: - Write documentation for how to use libstemmer (as opposed to how stemming algorithms themselves work). Currently, the documentation in the include/libstemmer.h header file is pretty clear and comprehensive, but an overview document wouldn't go amiss. Things that would be nice to include at some point. - Add version numbers to each stemming algorithm, and allow the int more»
