GESL is a C library for learning a string edit distance / similarity based on convex optimization. It is able to handle multi-class problems and also includes a classification library that allows to learn a sparse classifier from an edit similarity and to evaluate its performance on test data. GESL is open-source and distributed under GNU/GPL 3 license.
