View Full Version : using mecab iPhone

Jul 27, 2011, 02:35 AM

I am trying to use mecab parse Japanese words on iPhone and it's not going so well.
I cannot create mecab object.
Below is what I have tried.

1) I tried using C code.
#import "mecab.h"


// mecab intializes to NULL
mecab_t *mecab = mecab_new2 ("");

2) I tried using C++ wrapper class

#include <mecab.h>

// tagger initializes to NULL
char *argv[] = {"mecab", "-a"};
MeCab::Tagger *tagger = MeCab::createTagger (1, argv);

What am I doing wrong?
Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
