Bob Carpenter has been doing some interesting work looking at the Jaro-Winkler algorythm he has implementations of various versions and has evaluated issues in the simmetrics and second string versions.

see http://www.alias-i.com/blog/?p=41 for more details.

Nice work Bob,

ideally i would like to add the additional jaro-winkler methods identified in this work, if anyone would like to port this into simmetrics it would be tremedously helpful.
