TAMS Analyzer is for Linux or Mac OS X. TAMS stands for Text Analysis Markup System



Quote
TAMS Analyzer for Macintosh OS X:
The native Open source, Macintosh Qualitative Research Tool
Introduction
TAMS stands for Text Analysis Markup System. It is a convention for identifying themes in texts (web pages, interviews, field notes). It was designed for use in ethnographic and discourse research.

TAMS Analyzer is a program that works with TAMS to let you assign ethnographic codes to passages of a text just by selecting the relevant text and double clicking the name of the code on a list. It then allows you to extract, analyze, and save coded information. TAMS Analyzer is open source; it is released under GPL v2. The Macintosh version of the program also includes full support for transcription (back space, insert time code, jump to time code, etc.) when working with data on sound files.
These links are for Macintosh OS X. Click on the GNUstep/CLI tams link to download and see screenshots of the Linux version or command line version.

I would really like to know if anyone is finding any of this software useful.

TAMS Analyzer and TAMS are (c) 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 by Matthew Weinstein and distributed under the GPL license.

 Portions of TAMS Analyzer are

 (c) Apple Computer (the code for string find/replace)
 AGRegex is (c) Aram Greenman
 PCRE Library is (c) Philip Hazel

TAMS and TAMS Analyzer are creations of Matthew Weinstein.
