= minhash

* http://example.com

== DESCRIPTION:

 Runs the MinHash algo across some strings using the murmur hash
 function.

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Does it right.

* Only works well for datasets with fewer than 2**32 (~4 billion)
  unique items in it. Larger than that and, due to use our hash
  function using unsigned 64-bit integers, we run into the birthday
  paradox.

== SYNOPSIS:
  # 23 can be any unsigned 32-bit integer, a la the MurmurHash docs.
  MinHash.minhash(['a', 'foo', 'c'], 23)

== REQUIREMENTS:

* murmur_hash gem

== INSTALL:

* sudo gem install minhash
