## Description

In this assignment, you are expected to design a document analysis program. The primary goal of this
experiment is to get you practice on linked lists and matrices.
2. Background Information
Document analytics is the process of deriving information from text. The documents are examined to
obtain information about authors by analyzing the texts. It is expected that an author’s documents will
be similar to each other. Therefore, author of a document can be identified using similarity between
other documents.
The similarity is a measure of the resemblance between datasets; i.e., how similar or alike the sets are.
The most commonly used datasets are terms when the similarity of documents is considered.
Documents similarities can be found using similarity metrics based on the frequency of terms in
documents.
In Information Retrieval approaches, the commonly used similarity measure is the Cosine Similarity.
Cosine similarity is a measure of similarity between non-zero vectors of an inner product space that
measures the cosine of the angle between them. When the documents are the subject, this measure
is computed by representing datasets as vectors in term space and then comparing the angles formed
by the vectors.
Given two vectors of terms, A and B, the cosine similarity is represented using a dot product and
magnitude (Magnitude is defined as the length of a vector. The notation for absolute value [|| ||]is
also used for the magnitude of a vector.) as follows:
The cosine of 0o means that cos(0) = 1 and that the vectors have identical directions, in other words,
the corresponding datasets are completely similar to one another. The cosine of 90o means that
cos(90) = 0 and that the vectors are perpendicular, in other words, corresponding variables are

uncorrelated. Consequently, if the cosine similarity is closer to 1, the similarity of vectors increases. In
the case of information retrieval, the cosine similarity of two documents will range from 0 to 1, since
the term frequencies cannot be negative. The angle between two vectors of term frequency cannot
be greater than 90o
.
3. Experiment
The primary goal of this experiment is to make you acquainted with operations in linked lists like
In this experiment, you are expected to write an application that calculates the document similarity
and holds the pairs of words in a document. And you are also expected to use linked lists and matrices
when performing this assignment.
You will design and implement an application program named Simon, in ANSI C and compile it with
gcc. You will also use the make utility and write a makefile [7] for your project.
The application is a document analysis program. Simon will get some commands and parameters as
arguments from the console until the user sends –q parameter.
Example
–r bbm203/p3/d1.txt # read d1.txt form the given path
–a w2 3 d1.txt #add w2 with count 3 in d1.txt
–n2 d1.txt #get first 3 pairs of words that pass the most on the document
–d w1 d1.txt #delete w1 from d1.txt
–r bbm203/p3/d2.txt # read d2.txt form the given path
–s d1 d2.txt #return similarity of d1.txt and d2.txt
-q #quit the application
Details of example
With –r command, the application will read the given document word by word. In order to obtain
words, you should stop reading on all non-alphanumeric characters. Also, you should hold all words
With –a w2 3 d1.txt command and parameters, the application will add the word w2 and its count (3)
to the list of d1 document.
With –n2 d1.txt command and parameter, the application will return the first 3 pairs of words that
pass the most on the document d1.txt. (Pairs of words means that two consecutive words. For
example, the sentence “today the weather is so cold” has 5 pairs of words; today-the, the-weather,
weather-is, is-so, so-cold) To get the pairs of words, you have to design nested linked list.
With –d w1 d1.txt command and parameters, the application will delete the node which holds the
information of w1, from the linked list
With –s d1.txt d2.txt command and parameters, the application will return the cosine similarity of
d1.txt and d2.txt. To simplify operations, the application will calculate just fist 10 words of the
documents’ sorted list. It means that there will be the maximum 20×2 (word x document) matrix for
calculation of similarity.

With –q command, the application will free to memory and close.
A sample application
A sample application is detailed below, so you can understand the solution of the problem better.
The contents of d1.txt and d2.txt are as follows.
d1.txt The funct printf( ) and scanf( ) types, plus null-term and char strings. Char strings char and.
Blah blah blah blah
d2.txt This is testing for printf… This is testing for scanf… char strings and char. fgetc(file) to5 blah
blah blah blah blah the and
-r d1.txt: With this command d1.txt document is read by the application. While reading, the application
creates a linked list for the document and adds words to list with their pair. The final representation
of this process is shown in Figure 1.
the funct printf and scanf types plus null term char strings blah

scanf 1 types 1 plus 1 null 1 term 1 char 1
char 1

funct 1 printf 1 and 1 char 2 blah 3
Figure 1. Linked list of words of d1.txt before sorting
You have to sort the linked list. You can sort the list while adding the words or after reading all text.
The final representation of sorting is shown in Figure 2. (P.s. The bubble sort algorithm is used on this
sample. You can use any sorting algorithm in your application.) There won’t be any output.

scanf 1 types 1 plus 1 null 1 term 1 char 1

–a Ccode 3 d1.txt: the application will add the word Ccode and its count (3) to the sorted linked list of
d1 document. The final representation of the linked list of d1.txt after adding the given word and its
count is shown in Figure 3.

–n2 d1.txt: For this command, the application will print first 3 pairs of words that pass the most on the
document d1.txt on the screen of the console.
Blah-blah, char-strings, strings-char
–d types d1.txt: For this command, the application will delete the node which holds the information
of the given word (“types”). There won’t be any output but you have to update the linked list of given
document (“d1”). The representation of the linked list of d1.txt after delete operation is shown in
Figure 4.

–s d1.txt d2.txt: After getting this command the application will return the cosine similarity of d1.txt
and d2.txt. First, you will get the first 10 words from the linked list of d1.txt and d2.txt. Then you will
create a document-word matrix according to the number of different words you have. And then, you
will put the words counts into the document-word matrix. The document-word matrix of this sample
application is shown in Figure 6. Finally, you will apply cosine similarity on the matrix and will print the
result of similarity on the screen of the console like below.
blah and char ccode strings the funct printf scanf plus this is testing for fgetc
d1 4 3 3 3 2 1 1 1 1 1 0 0 0 0 0
d2 5 1 2 0 1 1 0 1 1 0 2 2 2 2 1
Figure 6. The document-word matrix of this sample application
Cosine Similarity of d1.txt and d2.txt is 0.660
Important Issues
 In order to obtain terms, you should stop reading on all non-alphanumeric characters.
 All terms in your list must be in lower case
 Be careful! If the magnitude of two documents is zero, there will be division by zero error when
calculating cosine similarity. In this case, the result will be zero.
 Test your program on “dev.cs.hacettepe.edu.tr” before submission. Your submission will be
compiled and executed on this machine and this machine only.
 Projects without a proper Makefile won’t be graded.
 Your application will be controlled for possible memory leaks and you will get bonus points.
Assignment Report
 Report will be 30 points
 Give necessary details without unnecessary clutter.
 Do a Big-O notation algorithm analysis of your functions
 Guide: ftp://ftp.cs.hacettepe.edu.tr/pub/dersler/genel/FormatForLabReports.doc
Last Remarks
 Regardless of the length, use UNDERSTANDABLE names to your variables, classes, and
Functions
 Write READABLE SOURCE CODE block
o These will cost you points.
 Deadline is 23:59 pm. No other submission method will be accepted.
 The assignment must be original, INDIVIDUAL work. Duplicate or very similar assignments are
both going to be punished. General discussion of the problem is allowed, but DO NOT SHARE
 Copying without citing will be considered as cheating. Citing does not make it yours; cited work
will get 0 from the respective section.
