Fuzzy function for string similarity

I am looking for a fuzzy implementation of the fuzzy term "similarity
between two strings", and a function calculating to what degree
two strings can be viewed as beeing similar (taking into account the
shared characters, their position and order in the two strings)

Any pointer to libraries or code with such a clever function (for example
written in FuzzyClips) are welcome.

Thank you very much in advance.
