    C and Natural Language Processing

    Short question: is C suitable to write a program to do Natural Language Processing?

    For example, the lack of a String type, makes me think there are better choices.
    On the other hand, I don't like Python, partly because I don't see any good in dynamic typing. And Java is too BIG.

    Well, there are standard string manipulation functions and non-standard string libraries (and you could write your own if needed).

    Maybe you could read pro-dynamic typing arguments to change your opinion so that you can like Python and thus use it, heheh.

    In terms of libraries, yes, but you do not have to use all of them.
    C + C++ Compiler: MinGW port of GCC
    Version Control System: Bazaar
