In order to implement the thesaurus option for full-text, one obviously needs a thesaurus. Are there any freely-available thesauri that:
1. Have a C/C++ API so they can be queried programmatically?
2. Contain the semantic information specified by ISO 2788?
I'm aware of WordNet from Princeton. While it does have a C API, it doesn't contain any of the semantic information from ISO 2788. Most of the other APIs I've seen are HTTP-based APIs. Using such an API would result if VERY slow queries since they have to go over the 'net.
What thesauri are full-text implementors using "in the wild"?
