$ ./guess.py Usage: ./guess.py string [directory]If the directory is not given, then use the current directory.
And a quick example:
$ ./guess.py wiki work-on-wikipedia string to match: wiki directory to search: work-on-wikipedia ==================================== 50 % wiki.xml 23.08 % 1000-wiki.xml 23.08 % 5000-wiki.xml 22.22 % wikipedia-links.sw 13.64 % play_with_wikipedia.py 12.5 % trial-wikipedia-links.sw 12 % fragment_wikipedia_xml.py 10.34 % fast-write-wikipedia-links.sw 8.82 % play_with_wikipedia__fast_write.pySo, that should be clear enough. And whether anything like this is already out there, I don't know. I presume so. eg, using the edit-distance algorithm as used in spell-checkers could be used in a similar way to my simm.
Heh. Perhaps I gave a bad example! In the above case, a simple:
$ ls -1 work-on-wikipedia/ | grep wiki 1000-wiki.xml 5000-wiki.xml fast-write-wikipedia-links.sw fragment_wikipedia_xml.py play_with_wikipedia.py play_with_wikipedia__fast_write.py trial-wikipedia-links.sw wiki.xml wikipedia-links.swwould have given similar results!
So here is another example of guess:
$ ./guess.py "sam fred" sw-examples/ | head string to match: sam fred directory to search: sw-examples ==================================== 30.77 % small-fred.sw 26.67 % Freds-family.sw 26.32 % fred-sam-friends.sw 22.22 % shares.sw 16.67 % saved-commands.txt $ ./guess.py "fred sam" sw-examples/ | head string to match: fred sam directory to search: sw-examples ==================================== 33.33 % Freds-family.sw 31.58 % fred-sam-friends.sw 25 % frog.sw 23.08 % small-fred.sw 20 % friends.swSo some things to note are:
1) "fred sam" and "sam fred" give essentially the same answer
2) I made it case insenstive
3) we don't need to use any regexp, which we would have to do if using grep in a similar manner.
4) we could possibly use this to help find the exact ket when we only partly know its name, and the sw file is too large to search manually.
Anyway, should be useful here and there.
