Details and OptionsDetails and Options

  • For lists , Take[si,posi] returns the longest common subsequence. For strings , StringTake[si,posi] returns the longest common contiguous substring.
  • If there are several common subsequences of the same length, LongestCommonSubsequencePositions returns the position of the one that appears earliest in .
  • For strings, setting the option IgnoreCase->True makes LongestCommonSubsequencePositions treat lowercase and uppercase letters as equivalent, and returns the form of common subsequence that occurs in .
