Description : Python library for comparing sequences
This package provides helpers for computing similarities between
arbitrary sequences. Included metrics are Levenshtein, Hamming,
Jaccard, and Sorensen distance, plus some bonuses. The distance
computations are implemented in pure Python.
This package is needed as a build dependency for
python3-textdistance, which is a much more comprehensive Python
package for calculating the distance between sequences.
This package is a (recursive) dependency of the new Spyder 4.x
series, hence the need to package it.
There is an included C library which is optional but broken and so
has been disabled.
This package will be maintained within the Debian Python Team.
