Finance::CompanyNames is a Perl module for finding names of companies in arbitrary English text. The module can locate names and their variants, using statistical language processing methods. It is possible to automatically locate instances of "XYZ Corp" as well as "XYZ Corp.", "XYZ Corporation", and even "XYZ". This module fulfills a common need for programmers in the financial and investment communities.
Not quite all there
This program probably looks fine on the author's computer but is unbearable on mine. GTK+ users must learn about flexible widget layout. Aside from the impossibility of actually reading the labels in gnometoaster, I was unable to make it find my two SCSI cd writers and I was constantly attacked by popup windows whose use was unclear.
