Python library for string matching.
This project seeks to build a Python software package that consists of a comprehensive and scalable set of string tokenizers (such as alphabetical tokenizers, whitespace tokenizers) and string similarity measures (such as edit distance, Jaccard, TF/IDF). The package is free, open-source, and BSD-licensed.
py_stringmatching has been tested on Python 2.7, Python 3.3, Python 3.4, Python 3.5 and Python 3.6.
The required dependencies to build the package are NumPy 1.7.0 or higher, Six, and a C or C++ compiler. For the development version, you will also need Cython.
py_stringmatching has been tested on Linux, OS X and Windows.
