Bug#83624: ITP: whichman -- Fault tolerant search utilities: whichman, ftff, ftwhich.
Version: N/A; reported 2001-01-26
I'd like to package whichman - set of three useful search utilities.
ftff, ftwhich and whichman are fault tolerant search utilities.
whichman allows to search for man pages that match approximately the specified
search key. whichman is especially useful if you have forgotten the precise
name of a man-page/command since it performs case in-senstitive approximate

ftff is a fault tolerant file find utility and ftwhich
is a fault tolerant version for the 'which' command.
The error tolerant approximate string match is based on the
Levenshtein Distance between two strings. This is a measure for the
number of replacements, insertions and deletions that are necessary
to transform string A into string B.
