Subject: [Chicago-talk] Regular expression discussion.
Tired of shoveling snow. Well sit right down and lets have a regex discussion. I
have a perl script that at the moment just uses grep to look though text files
that have been converted from pdf2text to see what sort of documents they are.
What I am finding however is that a lot of searches fail by just a few
For example, if I am looking for "This first document is a contract between" the
text string in the file might look like this
"This tirst document is a coniract betweeo" and the grep search fails. However,
as you can see these two statements are 93% alike. Is there a way with perl
regular expressions to match strings that are say 90, 95 or 98% alike?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
