Corpus Crawler

Corpus Crawler is a tool for Corpus Linguistics. Modern linguistic research works on language corpora, which are large samples of “real world” text. This crawler helps to build such corpora: it follows links to publicly accessible web pages known to be written in a certain language; it removes boilerplate and HTML markup; finally, it writes its output into plaintext files. The crawler implements the Robots Exclusion Standard, and it is intentionally slow so it does not cause much load on the crawled web sites.
