This package calculates Optimal Matching distance, and a number of other inter-sequence distance measures, and has a set of utilities for handling and summarising sequence data.
Included in the distance measures are Dynamic Hamming, Time-Warp Edit Distance, and a spell-oriented version of Elzinga's
It uses plugins for some of the most intensive operations, so it is very fast, but is restricted to 32- and 64-bit Linux and Windows. If you would like to compile it for a different architecture, Brendan Halpin would be happy to cooperate.
