Diogenes

July 14th, 2004 by Ross Scaife

Peter Heslin writes that he has updated Diogenes, his freeware (GPL) tool for searching and browsing the databases of ancient texts, primarily in Latin and Greek, that are published by the Thesaurus Linguae Graecae and the Packard Humanities Institute. Here’s the entry in his changelog:

v. 1.3 Long-delayed bug-fix release. The interface to the Perseus morphological parser must have changed at some point, because words with a chi, xi, or psi had broken. Fixed handling of browsing of non-numerical targets (eg. biographies). Fixed encoding of web pages, so cutting and pasting has a better chance of working. A few other small fixes. Began using Darcs for source control. (13-Jul-04)

In addition he has added a feature I’d requested recently, more ubiquitous display of basic TLG Canon metadata when browsing texts. Thanks Peter!
