[fpc-pascal] Text matching for configuration files etc.

I know that there are algorithms which given a text fragment will find 
the "best fit" from a number of candidates, based on how many substrings 
have to be deleted or changed.

Is there anything like this in the standard FPC library, and if not does 
anybody have one or a URL?

Application is a configuration file handler, where parameters describe 
things like keyboard layout, and I want to include some latitude so that 
a user doesn't have to get it exactly right if editing by hand.
