    comparing 2 long strings to tell % of similarity?

    wfzen Level 1

      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,
