Just for the sake of completeness: A fast and elegant algorithm for this is a tricky use of suffix trees. One concatenates the two strings of length n and m, say abcdef%efgab\$. It is possible to construct a suffix tree of this string in O(n+m) (Ukkonen algorithm). To find the common substrings, one has then to search for nodes that have exactly two (or the number of strings) leafs belonging to the different words. The resulting suffix tree for "abcdef" and "efgab":
```     |      |(3:cdef%efgab\$)|leaf
|(1:ab)|
|      |(13:\$)|leaf
tree:|
|     |(3:cdef%efgab\$)|leaf
|(2:b)|
|     |(13:\$)|leaf
|
|(3:cdef%efgab\$)|leaf
|
|(4:def%efgab\$)|leaf
|
|      |(7:%efgab\$)|leaf
|(5:ef)|
|      |(10:gab\$)|leaf
|
|     |(7:%efgab\$)|leaf
|(6:f)|
|     |(10:gab\$)|leaf
|
|(7:%efgab\$)|leaf
|
|(10:gab\$)|leaf
|
So "ab" has two leafs in the different words (position <= 7 for leaf 1 and position > 7 for leaf 2). So have 'b', 'ef' and 'f'.

Update: Just found some perl code with google ... on perlmonks ;) Re: finding longest common substring

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

• Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
• Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
• Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
• Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
• You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
 For: Use: & & < < > > [ [ ] ]
• Link using PerlMonks shortcuts! What shortcuts can I use for linking?
