Performing a Fuzzy Search

A "fuzzy search" can be used to retrieve matches that normally would have been "near misses".

A numeric value on the scale of 0-1 is used to indicate how liberal the included results should be. A value of "1.0" would mean "exact matches only, while a value of "0.0" would match everything (but would lead to significant performance issues).

The recommended range for a fuzzy search is from 0.5-0.9. Examples: With a "0.8" numeric value, a search for "plaintiff" would return documents containing "plaintifh" (perhaps a misspelling).
