How do I compare word by word and give a percentage of text that are identical using Lingo? I can think of start by comparing word from the beginning, but I'm not sure what to deal with it when there is a mismatch. How does it know where to start checking on match when another pattern of similarly comes up?
Thanks for any suggestions,
that being said, it's easy to find the % once you find the difference... take the word count of the returned difference string and divide it by the word count of the string you are doing the difference with.
Thank you for the suggestion and links.
I just thought of a way to implement. Maybe change the strings into lists and compare and see how many of the items match then come up with a percentage.
