me, 2.0: jose nazario
beauty and the street
i have finally whipped up a release of libdistance, a
string distance library. it
implements a number of well known algorithms for calculating the
differences between two string inputs. for example, to go from "boats"
to "booth" would "cost" 2 using various algorithms. more algorithms
are in the future for libdistance.
the jmatch utility
makes use of libdistance to provide a "fuzzy grep" like tool.
