This paper presents a general-purpose open source package for recognizing Tex- tual Entailment. The system implements a collection of algorithms, providing a con- figurable framework to quickly set up a working environment to experiment with the RTE task. Fast prototyping of new solutions is also allowed by the possibil- ity to extend its modular architecture. We present the tool as a useful resource to ap- proach the Textual Entailment problem, as aninstrument for didactic purposes, and as anopportunity tocreate acollaborative en- vironment to promote research in the field.
