stringdist: Approximate string matching and string distance functions

Implements an approximate string matching version of R's native 'match' function. Can calculate various string distances based on edits (damerau-levenshtein, hamming, levenshtein, optimal sting alignment), qgrams (q-gram, cosine, jaccard distance) or heuristic metrics (jaro, jaro-winkler).
