Hi all, I am trying to come up with a way to compare two arrays. I don't want to just find the intersection and such, I want to end up with map of where each element in the second array was derived from in the first array. Something like this:
my @array1=qw(I like to eat tacos); my @array2=qw(Do you like to eat burritoes); my @diff=get_diff(\@array1,\@array2); @diff=( ['Do',0,0], ['you',1,0], ['like',2,1], ['to',3,2], ['eat',4,3], ['burritoes',5,4] );
Note that if one element appears to have replaced another such as "burritoes" replaces "tacos", those elements are mapped together. I was wondering if there was some module out there that did something like this. I have been playing around with different algorthims, but I wanted to be sure I am not just reinventing the wheel.
