Re^2: Is it possible to find the number of matching and non-matching positions in strings using perl code?by sauoq (Abbot)

I would split the strings into character arrays and then count the matches returned by the each_array function of the module List::MoreUtils.
Eeek! No... don't do that. And, for that matter, don't use the approach I gave above either. I just wanted to show how, yes, it could easily be done just by automating the way you might do it by hand.
If you want efficiency, resort to bit twiddling!
