Comparison Functions for Clustering and Record Linkage

Implements functions for comparing strings, sequences and numeric vectors for clustering and record linkage applications. Supported comparison functions include: generalized edit distances for comparing sequences/strings, Monge-Elkan similarity for fuzzy comparison of token sets, and L-p distances for comparing numeric vectors. Where possible, comparison functions are implemented in C/C++ to ensure good performance.
