CASS is a context sensitive Synonym Suggester that makes use of WordNet as a knowledge source to retrieve synsets, definitions, word senses, and other details for given words. CASS is built using Word Sense Disambiguiation algorithns, both existing and improved, in order to create a list of synonym suggestions that are accurate and relevant to the user based on the context for any given word.

    So /usr/lib isn't really a thing w/ Windows. I dug through the installation directory (using a portable version of LO) and couldn't find any place that looked promising.

    Can you please provide installation instructions for people using Windows?
