Conc permits the user to define the sorting order and to limit the concordance to words that match specified patterns (GREP expressions).
Conc will do concordances both on ordinary flat text files and also on multiple-line interlinear texts. In the case of interlinear texts, the concordance can be limited to selected lines (fields). In addition to word concording, Conc can also produce a concordance of each letter in a text or body of phonological data. Pattern-matching facilities are also available to letter concordances, so the user can specify search patterns that will have the effect of retrieving, say, words containing intervocalic obstruents.
Concordances can be both printed and exported to plain text files. As for performance, on a Mac IIci Conc can produce a concordance of Moby Dick (1,177KB) in about 13 minutes and requires about 2,500KB of memory.
Conc version 1.76 is a beta test version offered as 'freeware'. If you use it, we only ask that you send us your comments, complaints, and wishlist. You can affect the shape of the final product! Documentation is included on-disk in a Microsoft Word file.
