Summary0000885: Use 'madman' fuzzy search for getting track details from amazon
DescriptionThanks for the link, I found a description of the algorithm (elsewhere, using names in the sources). I'm not sure it will be possible to use it any soon (given Access DB limitations), but maybe yes. It can definitely be used
for the Amazon dialog fuzzy track names matching (you can possibly set up a bug for this).

> When we were talking yesterday about fuzzy logic re. matching tracks in the tracklist to those found in a moodlogic/musicbrainz/amg query, it reminded me of something I'd read recently. A linux project called madman has a fuzzy search implementation (based on that of another project called yammi) that is very highly rated. It finds search results even when the search is completely mispelled (it seems to me that this same logic could work for mispellings of accented characters).
