Edit Distance?

Postby DFH » Thu Jan 05, 2012 1:54 am

Why is Edit Distance a "Find type" rather than an Option for other Find types?

Hi David,

It doesn't fit well as an option for other find types, but I do see your point. How would you like to use it? To limit the replacements to words that are 'close' enough?

That might be one way of using it, though I guess the same functionality can be achieved with Perl patterns, albeit much less elegantly and harder to debug.
