I have found source code to perform a check against two strings and return a numerical result depending on how similar they are. It's called Levenshtein Distance. I would love to have this as a DLL where a single command would return the result of the check. eg: Result = Compare String(t1$,t2$).
However I am a 'DBP only man' and I lack the knowledge to make the DLL myself. Is anyone willing/able to take the code and make a DLL with it? I don't know how much work is involved in the making of a DLL but having the source code should surely help a lot.

I fully expect this to drop off the page without anyone taking up the challenge but here's hoping ...

Here is the code in C++ (with some initial comments):


Code in Visual Basic:


Code in Java:



Thanks

Will this do?

(And if it does, then yes, the code did help!)

That's awsome!

Once again, you have not only made the DLL but have made it appear fully integrated into DBP with the help files and keyword files much like your d3d plugin.

Thank you so very, very much

Your welcome, and the keywords have to be there, drives me mad without having the commands highlighted. The help is only there due to the one command, probably wouldn't have been if there was more .

Scilynt, I was wondering whether you could do me a big favour.

Could you send me an either VC++ 6.0/.net 2003 solution that has just
one blank command that will compile a .dll for DBP?

I can do the rest. If you don't have time or don't want to then it's
fine, it would just be a big help if you did

Edit: It could even be in Dev-C++

You can get two visual studio projects from your DBP installation directory under Help\Documents\Files\Third Party Commands\. The first doesn't access Pro's internals, the second does. If you need access to the some internal stuff, and you're aiming for v5.9+ then you'll need the new globstruct files, they're stickied somewhere (or linked in one of the stickies).

The project files for VS6, but any VS.NET version will convert them to solutions.

This is just silly! Silly! Silly!

Fantastic work again, thank you. I've had to create a new folder now of all the TPCs I have installed and what they do. There's so many extras these days that it's impossible to remember what commands you have at your disposal.
