Heck, if people are interested in cooking up more fuzzy modules, that
would be great too.
Here's the problem: ignoring the pile of coding that I still need to do to
complete the phrase search modifications, I'm at a bit of a loss on some
of my planned fuzzy modules.
I had come up with the idea of a simple spelling-correction module. Since
it would base the corrections on the word database, it seems like it
should match even misspellings in both the query and the word.
Right now, the speling module matches one-off errors for either extra
characters or transpositions. Obviously, it would be great to match
one-off errors in missing letters too. But I can't come up with a solution
beyond a naive one since we might be matching accented characters.
Is there something better than looping through the word characters in each
position and testing if such a word exists?
