val search_substring: string -> string -> int -> int

val edit_distance : string -> string -> int -> int option
(** [edit_distance a b cutoff] computes the edit distance between
    strings [a] and [b]. To help efficiency, it uses a cutoff: if the
    distance [d] is smaller than [cutoff], it returns [Some d], else
    [None].

    The distance algorithm currently used is Damerau-Levenshtein: it
    computes the number of insertion, deletion, substitution of
    letters, or swapping of adjacent letters to go from one word to the
    other. The particular algorithm may change in the future.
