Text::LevenshteinXS is an XS implementation of the Levenshtein edit distance in Perl. A good point to start is: <http://www.merriampark.com/ld.htm> See also Text::Levenshtein on CPAN for a pure Perl version of this module. PREREQUISITES This suite requires Perl 5; I tested it only under Perl 5.6. Text::LevenshteinXS requires the Test module. A C compiler. INSTALLATION You install Text::LevenshteinXS by running these commands in the *nix environment: perl Makefile.PL make make test (optional) make install To install Text::LevenshteinXS in the Win32 environment, use nmake instead of make. nmake is available for free (in a self extracting executable): <http://download.microsoft.com/download/vc15/Patch/1.52/W95/EN-US/Nmake15.exe> After download and inflate, put nmake.exe and nmake.err in c:\windows\command . You need also a C compiler (e.g. Visual C++). DOCUMENTATION POD format documentation is included in LevenshteinXS.pm. POD is readable with the command: perldoc Text::LevenshteinXS AVAILABILITY The latest version of Text::LevenshteinXS is available from the CPAN <http://search.cpan.org/> COPYRIGHT Copyright 2003 Dree Mistrut <email@example.com> This package is free software and is provided "as is" without express or implied warranty.
