Follow-up Comment #4, bug #49375 (project octave):


We actually had a more advanced mechanism for computing
string distances in an old version of odepkg that was based
on Levenshtein metric <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Levenshtein_distance>

The code can be recovered from the repository here:

c++ version

or here


the function fuzzy_compare
finds the best match of a given string within a set of allowed strings and
would be useful in this context.
