( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
hello, I am trying to compare string similarity based on the function sort_by_similarity().The strings are stored as array of hashes,I am unable to understand the way to get the sorted strings by similarity. I tried it in this way.
for($x=0;$x<$r;$x++){ @b = sort_by_similarity( \@querysubs,$inputsubs[$x]{'sequence'}); $y=\@b; #@array=@$y; #print $y->[0]; #$m=\@array; #print $m; $h=\($y->[0]); print $$h; #%hash=%\($y->[0]); foreach my $key(keys %hash){ #print "$key:$hash{$key}\n"; } }
Here $inputsubs$x{'sequence'} gives the input string and this is compared with the strings in @querysubs. Ex:-If the input string is
abcdef
It gets divided into abc bcd cde def according to 3 as the windowsize. If the query sequence is abcefg It even gets divided into abc bce cef efg

I need to compare each of the strings in the inputsubs with the querysubs and get the best matching string for each of these strings using the function sort_by_similarity(),but I am unable to understand the value returned by the function and unable to access the values and print them.

Please help me in solving out this problem.
Regards,
Roopa
