A discussion of commonly used similarity coefficients and a new
coefficient are available through anonymous ftp at
in the directory /pub/amanita
This is a readonly directory.
All files beginning simi* should be downloaded.
        similar.qba - a QBASIC program implementing the new index
        similari.pdf - text of an article discussing commonly used
                indices and justifying the need for a new index.
                The workings of the new index are described.
        similarity.idx.announcement - earlier posting to taxacom
                with information about the index - sample input file
        simindex.out - sample output file

Very best,
Rod Tulloss
