text.alignment: Text Alignment with Smith-Waterman

Find similarities between texts using the Smith-Waterman algorithm. The algorithm performs local sequence alignment and determines similar regions between two strings. The Smith-Waterman algorithm is explained in the paper: "Identification of common molecular subsequences" by T.F.Smith and M.S.Waterman (1981), available at <doi:10.1016/0022-2836(81)90087-5>. This package implements the same logic for sequences of words and letters instead of molecular sequences.
