Hello,

i've been looking for some "standard" way of finding relations in my database where some string is not far away, using hamming distance, from some user specified string. well, i could simply generate some number of strings that are in range of that user specified one, but maby there's some faster way of doing this? lenght of the string i'll be looing for is 17, hamming distance should be at least 3. so, at least 680 queries have to be done! Quite a lot for just one search...
