The latest ULI segmentation exception has been posted in SVN: http://unicode.org/uli/trac/browser/trunk/abbrs
- Reference to CLDR date/month and other necessary symbols
- Available in JSON (json-cooked) format. The XLS files contain the input data including exception type and frequency.
The latest demo is also updated to reflect the changes above. Try it out yourself at http://demo.icu-project.org/icu-bin/icusegments
Things to try:
- Compare ULI vs. non-ULI version of the English sample text. Note breaks after "Mr." in the non-uli format.
- For German ULI, try the string "
Im Okt. München war kalt." ( Something like, in October, Munich was cold. ) Without ULI the sentence breaks after the abbreviation Okt (for Oktober). With ULI and with CLDR data, "Okt." is an exception.
