( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
OP said it could also be deletions and insertions. So the xor trick won't work. Without more information from OP, we can only guess, but I was guessing this was a genetics problem trying to build DNA sequences from fragments, and the mention of base64 was just mock data to test the algorithm. If the data can have random insertions, deletions, and swaps, then you need the full DP algorithm. *IF* the number of acceptable errors is low, then yes you can short-circuit it and maybe end up close to linear, but then there's stil the added complexity of deciding how much overlap gives the best result.

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



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
