If I invoke logon as $LOGONROOT/bin/logon without the --source
parameter, i.e. the runtime, I only ever get (0) as the result of
score-strings. If, however, I use the runtime, I get far more
interesting values. Unfortunately, though, I lose readings in
generation, then. Inspecting the generator chart, the crucial rule wh-h
is missing, although I can manually unify it. I checked for the usual
suspects like index filtering, but to no avail.
BTW, the version of ACL we have at DFKI is 8.0, in case that matters...
Do you need a version of the grammar?
I can send you a .tar.gz, if you want.
