Identifying quotes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Has previous work been done on this?  Is their a library one can download? Here's the problem.  In an aricle a person or author may make a statement about a subject or a person.  I am making a database on this. 

    For example, here in Israel, PM Olmert may make a statement on the teacher's strike or on Abu Mazen.  The article may say, speaking of Mazen, Olmert said such and such.  PM Olmert said, "xxxxxxx......." with the previous material making it clear whathe was speaking of.

    Right now I have ugly code.  Is there a neat way of doing this?

    If this is the wrong forum, can somebody direct me to the right forum?

    Thanks.

  • What problem do you have ? Are you getting errors ? There should be only problems with single quotes. Double quotes within strings should be treaten as normal strings.

    Select 'This is in "double quotes"'

    No specific problems but their are so many ways of identifying quotes or references to quotes whilr minimizing false positives that the code is not pretty.  I even hace devexpress' refractor pro which is of limited help.

    It seems politicians constantly pop up with past quotes of their opponents statements that I'm not breaking new ground.  I'd to stand on the shoulders of those who have dealt with this before.
