levenshtein-damerau

0.1.0 • Public • Published

skod.it implementation of the Damerau-Levenshtein distance. This is not the Levenshtein distance only, this allows for a look-ahead and substitute at no cost.

Example:

Comparing: 'four' and 'fuor'
Levenshtein Distance: 2 - a substitution on the 'o' and the 'u' is required
Damerau-Levenshtein Distance: 1 - in 'fuor' borrowed the 'o' and had to generate the 'o' in the third place again.

Using skod_levenshteindamerau

  $ npm install levenshtein-damerau

Within your application

var ld = require("./skodld.js");
 
console.log("four:fuor",ld("four","fuor"));
 
/* DEBUG */
var showmatrix = 6;
console.log("\nfuor:four,debug custom");
ld("fuor","four",function(matrix){
  showmatrix--;
  if(showmatrix == 0){
    console.log(matrix);
  }
});
 
console.log("\nfuor:four,default debug");
ld("fuor","four",1);        

Outputs:

four:fuor 1
