A lock (Dot gov) or https:// don't prove our archive is authentic, only that you securely accessed it. Note that we are working to fix that :)

Similarity function


  compares two similarity digests and outputs a score. The recommended approach is to assign a score s in the 0 ≤ s ≤ 1 range, where 0 indicates no similarity and 1 indicates high similarity. This score represents a normalized estimate of the number of matching features in the feature sets corresponding to the artifacts from which the similarity digests were created.
