Substring edit distance

Project description

A C extension that uses a modified version of the Levenshtein distance algorithm to calculate fuzzy matches for substrings.

All strings used by the subdist module must be Unicode strings.

New in version 0.2

The get_score function returns match score [0.0, 1.0] of needle in haystack based on substring distance


fuzzy substring distance for “bdb” in “aaa bbb ccc”

import subdist

needle = u"bdb"
haystack = u"aaa bbb ccc"
distance = subdist.substring(needle, haystack) # 1
