Text::Brew - An implementation of the Brew edit distance in Perl, defined in


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

Text::Brew does not use any nonstandard modules.


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

   perl Makefile.PL
   make test (optional)
   make install

To install Text::Brew 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 in c:\windows\command .


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

  perldoc Text::Brew


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