Description Ruediger Landmann 2011-01-18 00:04:15 UTC
Spec URL: 


The similarity function calculates the similarity index of its two arguments. 
A value of 0 means that the strings are entirely different. A value of 1 
means that the strings are identical. Everything else lies between 0 and 1 
and describes the amount of similarity between the strings.

Thanks for the review Marcela.

I've updated the license to GPLv2+ and removed the unnecessary cleaning of the build root.

New spec file:
