StringCompare, return number of similar words

Recommended Posts



Wich function should I use to compare 2 strings If I want to get the number of similar words in both strings?


"I like to eat green apples"

"My house is green and I am happy"

Would return "2"

Thanks! ;)

One you write yourself! :evil:

I can imagine it might involve StringSplit, _ArraySearch and a couple of nested loops. ;)

Have fun!

I could do it by using multiple functions but I was wondering if there were any function in the Autoit Library that could already do that.. I searched but could not find one.

It's why I am asking. ;)

EDIT: Nvm, Just did it with StringSplit, _ArraySearch, 10 line of code. Yay! Thanks ^^
