Talk:Word break problem

From Rosetta Code


In my experiments with this, the first thing I missed was a dictionary with conjugations, plurals, past participles, etc. For instance separate would be there but there would be no separate entry for separated. I also didn't know that unixdict.txt has 'b'..'z' as separate words, and no jabberwocky... Otherwise the Phix entry could have been quite practical for throwing a 48,000+ word dictionary at a paragraph, but probably not a whole book-full, of deciphered (and de-spaced) text.

What is the task again?[edit]

I don't understand from the task description, what is to be done.

  • What is the necessary format of this string? Is it white-space, alphanumeric, and other for example?
  • Are words a-zA-Z characters only
  • What is to happen to numerics? other characters in the string that are not words?

Maybe the task description needs filling out? --Paddy3118 (talk) 07:34, 18 August 2017 (UTC)
