Are there any examples or tutorials anywhere as to how to use this library, please?
in the code itself there are a number of files TestMetrics.java ExampleMetrics.java etc all these are at the root of the package heirarchy and should be a good starting point. If you need to know more about the metrics themselves see http://www.dcs.shef.ac.uk/~sam/stringmetrics.html where the working of various metrics are detailed.
hope this helps.
Thanks. Yes. I found them afterwards. Before that I hadn't unpacked or otherwise inspected the package because I just included it in my project in Eclipse and thought "ok, now where's the user documentation..." :P
