pp_edistance

Arguments: source string and target string.

  • OPTIONAL 3rd argument int (max distance; only return results with $int distance or less). 0 = unlimited. Default = 0.

Returns: int that represents the edit distance between the two argument. Stops calculations and returns -1 if max distance is set and reached.

Function to take the edit distance between a source and target string. Contains the actual algorithm implementation.

        print pp_edistance('Neil','Niel');
