Because Salience Five is provided as a text analytics engine that is integrated into your applications, the interface to the product is the Salience Five API.
The C API is provided as a set of includes and libraries, and is the lowest level of integration to the text analytics engine available to customers.
The wrappers allow for simple integration into applications developed in higher-level languages.
Note: The source code for the wrappers is also provided in the Salience Five distribution. The distributions contain pre-compiled .Net and Java wrappers, the PHP and python wrappers need to be compiled for your operating system and PHP or python version.
