### General

• Easy installation (around 15 reading the manual)
• The authors suggest that the software can deal with huge corpora quickly.
• Hidex is intended to produce Hal models introduced by Curt Burgess in 1996.
• The software is extremely new (it is in the version 0.03) so it is hard to know if it works adequately.
• I have not tested the software yet.

### Installation

• Check whether you have the right c++ compiler
g++ -v

You should have version 4.2 or higher

• Download the tar file and untar it in the desired location
tar xzf hidex.[version].tgz
• Go to the directory and compile the program
make index

You should now change a line in the file Makefile, in particular you would like to change the variable BINDIR. It should looke like:

#BINDIR=~/bin
BINDIR=/usr/local/bin
• Now run in the terminal:
sudo make install

By now you should be done.
