class RegexMatcher extends AnnotatorApproach[RegexMatcherModel]

Uses a reference file to match a set of regular expressions and associate them with a provided identifier.

A dictionary of predefined regular expressions must be provided with setExternalRules. The dictionary can be set in either in the form of a delimited text file or directly as an ExternalResource.

Pretrained pipelines are available for this module, see Pipelines.

For extended examples of usage, see the Spark NLP Workshop and the RegexMatcherTestSpec.

Example

In this example, the rules.txt has the form of

the\s\w+, followed by 'the'
ceremonies, ceremony

where each regex is separated by the identifier by ","
