An updated version of the Miscellaneous Psychometrics package has been
updated to CRAN. The following updates are included in the package:

1) An implementation of the Stocking-Lord procedure for linking test
2) An implementation of the Levenshtein algorithm for comparing
character strings
3) stringProbs, a function for computing the probability of a given
Levenshtein Distance
4) Three sources of documentation on all functions. There is complete
technical documentation on the functions used in MiscPsycho in the file
MP.pdf, the stocking-lord implementation is documented in
stock_lord.pdf, and a paper describing the Levenshtein algorithm and its
application in educational measurement is provided in levenshtein.pdf.
All of these are in the docs folder in the package distribution.

Any comments, reactions, critiques, are welcome.
