    Approximate string match

    Hello Cboard (it's been a while),

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any open-source, preferably lightweight, C++ "approximate match" libraries out there? It'd be a pain to implement one myself, and the C-built ones I've found are too heavy for my purposes.

    One of my applications needs a misspelling safety net, so that the user doesn't have to specify something exactly.

    Thanks.

    There's several spell checking libraries (aspell, ispell, myspell, hunspell). Perhaps their suggestion algorithms can help you.
    All the buzzt!
