Calculate Levenshtein distance between two strings.
The Levenshtein edit distance is a measure for the similarity between two strings. It's helpful for spelling correction, fuzzy completion, type-ahead and similar use cases.
This implementation supports Unicode.
In Cargo.toml add
[dependencies] edit-distance = "2.0.0"
cargo build. That fetches the dependencies and builds
extern crate edit_distance; edit_distance("kitten", "sitting"); // => 3
