nilsimsa algorithm

[ #5461 ]
The nilsimsa alogrithm came up on the Ruby mailing list. It's a hashing algorithm that allows you to determine how similar two strings are.

I never saw it before but it looked interesting. A clever teacher could use this to determine if students are ripping off each other's homework, no?
