partial bit matching
Posted by: Alexander Gusev

I have a database where one column holds entries consisting of bit sequences (0/1 strings of equal length). I would like to know if it's possible to do a sort of partial match search on such a field. In other words, I would like to SELECT one entry in that column and find all other entries which are x number of bits different.

Is this something that is possible with mySQL, or any databasing software?
