NAME

LCS::Tiny - Tiny implementation of the Longest Common Subsequence (LCS) Algorithm

SYNOPSIS

  use LCS::Tiny;

  $alg = LCS::Tiny->new;
  $lcs = $alg->LCS(\@a,\@b);

ABSTRACT

LCS::Tiny is a heavily tuned version based on Algorithm::Diff

DESCRIPTION

CONSTRUCTOR

new()

Creates a new object which maintains internal storage areas for the LCS computation. Use one of these per concurrent LCS() call.

METHODS

LCS(\@a,\@b)

Finds a Longest Common Subsequence, taking two arrayrefs as method arguments. It returns a list of corresponding indices, which are represented by 2-element array refs.

EXPORT

None by design.

SEE ALSO

Algorithm::Diff
