libalinga is a C++ implementation of a multi-stream codec for the ALingA (Aligned Linguistic Annotation) format. It makes use of libogg++. Each ALingA stream holds at least one stream of annotation data, which is in the LingA format. It may also interleave the signal stream(s) against which the LingA streams are aligned, or it may simply reference such streams. It also provides metadata about the underlying manifold for the signals and the annotations. The metadata is ordered for runtime parsing of the number and type of signal and LingA codecs to enable decoding of the multiple logical streams in one pass.
libalinga-java is a Java native interface to libalinga. It provides C++ and Java wrappers, as well as Java classes. It also provides control files to generate them from the libalinga interface using the program swig. The major and minor versions of this JNI will track that of libalinga, but its bugfixes are independent of libalinga bugfixes.
