    How to do fuzzy searching on a website?


    What are the ways in which to accomplish this? I know that there's libraries such as Zend, but can anyone tell me what others are there, and which one is the best? If I'm USING a database like MySQL, is it still possible? How, please?


    Thanks.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    What do YOU mean by "fuzzy searching"? Nothing in your post explains what you are trying to accomplish. Some examples, please.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!

    In general Fuzzy Searching is for finding close matches if exact matches aren't found. They get used to deal with misspelling and trying to return something.
