Programming hint

Reset all local variables at the beginning of the loop (Except counters and similar of course). So you won’t mixup values from the old loop with the actual loop !!

Python fuzzy string comparison

Fuzzy string comparison >>> import difflib >>> s=difflib.SequenceMatcher(None, "abcd","bcde") # Return a measure of the sequences’ similarity as a float in the range [0, 1]. # This is 1.0 if the sequences are identical, and 0.0 if they have nothing in common. >>> print s.ratio() 0.75 Bibliography http://stackoverflow.com/questions/682367/good-python-modules-for-fuzzy-string-comparison http://docs.python.org/library/difflib.html
