Multilanguage Stemming

Hi all,

I have just added the stemmer from snowball 
(http://www.snowball.tartarus.org) to the current
cvs version of SWISH-E. I have added the
following stemmers:

spanish
french
italian
portuguese
german
dutch

I have tested the spanish one and seems to work fine.
But I need volunteers to test the others...

So, if someone wants to try them, download the latest update
swish-e and add a simple line to the config.h file to activate it:

#define SNOWBALL

And then update your config file with:

UseStemming lang

where lang is one of es,fr,it,pt,de,nl (en is reserved for the current
stemmer).

cu
Jose
