Text::WagnerFischer is an implementation of the Wagner-Fischer edit distance in Perl.


This suite requires Perl 5; I tested it only under Perl 5.6.

Text::WagnerFischer does not use any nonstandard modules.


You install Text::WagnerFischer by running these commands in the *nix environment:

   perl Makefile.PL
   make test (optional)
   make install

To install Text::WagnerFischer in the Win32 environment, use nmake instead of make.
nmake is available for free (in a self extracting executable):
After download and inflate, put nmake.exe and nmake.err somewhere in your path.


POD format documentation is included in WagnerFischer.pm.
POD is readable with the command:

  perldoc Text::WagnerFischer


The latest version of Text::WagnerFischer is available from the
CPAN <http://search.cpan.org/>
