Harry is a small tool for comparing strings. The tool supports several common distance and kernel functions for strings as well as some exotic similarity measures. The focus of Harry lies on implicit similarity measures, that is, comparison functions that do not give rise to an explicit vector space. Examples of such similarity measures are the Levenshtein distance, the Jaro-Winkler distance or the spectrum kernel.
