Natural language refactoring tools

Leave a comment

Brian Foote in Thomas Jay Peckish II on Refactoring wonders about a prose refactoring tool. That's something I've been thinking about for a while. Some interesting ideas were mentioned in this entry in the KOffice GUI design competition. If I find the time I would like to tackle some sort of semantic word processor project built on eclipse RCP. Other implementation possibilities would be and AbiWord plugin. With the addition of document understanding, a word processor would become not just a 'word' processor but a sentence processor and, eventually, a thought processor.
