A generalized version of the string matching algorithm by Wagner and Fischer (1974) is proposed. It is based on a parametrization of the edit cost. We assume constant cost for any delete and insert operation, but the cost for replacing a symbol is given as a parameter τ. For any two strings A and B, our algorithm computes their edit distance in terms of the parameter τ. We give the new algorithm, study some of its properties, and discuss potential applications to pattern recognition
