Subject svn commit: r1502629 - in /ctakes/trunk/ctakes-temporal: pom.xml src/main/java/org/apache/ctakes/temporal/data/analysis/PrintFailedTimeNormalizations.java src/main/resources/org/apache/ctakes/temporal/timenorm.en.grammar
Date Fri, 12 Jul 2013 17:32:50 GMT
Author: stevenbethard
Date: Fri Jul 12 17:32:50 2013
New Revision: 1502629

URL: http://svn.apache.org/r1502629
Log:
Adds dependency to timenorm and script for printing time expressions that could not be normalized.
The script will not run on Java 6 however, only on Java 7. So until cTAKES upgrades to Java
7, anyone who wants to use this will have to locally change their Java version to Java 7 (and
be careful not to commit that change).
