Edit Distance (a.k.a. Levenshtein Distance) is a measure of similarity between two strings referred to as the source string and the target string.
The distance between the source string and the target string is the minimum number of edit operations (deletions, insertions, or substitutions) required to transform the source into the target. The lower the distance, the more similar the two strings.
