Interface SMStringNGram

All Superinterfaces:
SimilarityMeasure, SMString
All Known Implementing Classes:

public interface SMStringNGram extends SMString
Measures the nGram similarity of two strings. Splits both strings into all possible substrings of length n and computes a distance based on the number of identical sub-strings. The distance is normalized by division through the number of the maximum nGrams of both substrings. The comparison can be case sensitive or insensitive. For further explanation refer to the wiki.
