Class IntersectionSimilarity<T>

Type Parameters:
T - the type of the elements extracted from the character sequence
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class IntersectionSimilarity<T>
extends Object
implements SimilarityScore<IntersectionResult>
Measures the intersection of two sets created from a pair of character sequences.

It is assumed that the type T correctly conforms to the requirements for storage within a Set or HashMap. Ideally the type is immutable and implements Object.equals(Object) and Object.hashCode().
