String Metrics

«Estimate» stumbled across this awesome page with different string metric algorithms earlier today. Here you’ll find descriptions and implementations of Hamming distance, Levenshtein distance, Needleman-Wunch distance, Smith-Waterman distance and dozens other. Invaluable if you’re ever going to need to compare strings against each other and need some way to measure their similiarity.
