As a response to a request by HelmutWe
I searched and found an algorithm that seemed to match the request, and folded that into a C#/WinForms application.
After adding a few similar but different algorithms, also found on the internet, and re-shaping the UI a bit to handle larger texts and a results grid, the current incarnation is now available.
Used algorithms and sources:Features
Compare 2 strings/texts and calculate their similarity.Planned Features
Allow to select 2 files and determine their similarityRequested features
Make available as separate dll for use from other tools (undecided yet)Screenshots
