Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

Spelling correction

[ #22725 ]
In an earlier journal entry I mused about spelling correction for recipe searches. Well, in a spate of JFDI I extracted work frequency information, inserted a little String::Approx magic and lo and behold, you can now search for engrish muffinz, which presents "Did you mean: english muffins".

Now it's currently a little slow. Mind you, it's nothing as accurate as Google spelling correction but I think it's a handy little feature. Now to do a bit more research about large-scale spelling correction...
