Problem while using SharpNLP-1.0.2529-Bin\ToolsExample.exe


Hello support
I am using “SharpNLP-1.0.2529-Bin\ToolsExample.exe” example. As soon as I click on “Split” button I get following exception:
System.ArgumentOutOfRangeException: Non-negative number required.
Parameter name: count

Is their any setting I need to do to solve this problem?
Thank you

I met the same problem!! I wonder whether this project is still active.....

Adding the following snippet to line 169 of \SharpEntropy\IO\BinaryGisModelReader.cs (inside the for loop below this comment: "//read in the details of the predicates in this pattern") fixed it for me.

if (mInput.Position == mInput.Length)

I also suspect from looking at the codeproject comments here: http://www.codeproject.com/KB/recipes/englishparsing.aspx it could also be fixed by downloading the Java .bin files and using the ModelConverter on them but haven't tried that.

sorry, I added the snippet on line 164, not 169 as I said below.

Also, mInput.Position == mInput.Length just determines that we are at the end of the stream so there's nothing more to read.
