The strcmprate function compares a string to a list of strings returning the index and rating of the best comparison from the list.
Example:
[i,r] = strcmprate('testing costs',{'test cost' 'costing test' 'cost testing'})

i = 3
r = 0.6923

This function was written to find small discrepancies in text fields and records in a database from data entry errors.
