Subject Re: PorterStemmer / Levenshtein Distance
Date Fri, 05 Nov 2004 08:44:15 GMT
For the distance algorithm, check out FuzzyQuery and its dependent code.

Within Lucene's codebase is also a PorterStemFilter.  However, we'd 
like to deprecate this in favor of the Snowball stemming code that 
currently lives in the Lucene Sandbox repository.
