7.3. Testing NLP

CRATE provides specific ways to test individual NLP tools:

However, you can also test any NLP tool that you have configured:

crate_nlp [--config CONFIGFILE] --nlpdef NLPDEF --test_nlp

When you do this, you are asked to type text line by line, it’s passed to one or more NLP processors (as determined by the NLP definition), and you see the results.

The test does not use any databases.
