Does anybody know of an implementation of approximate string matching?

I would like to 'cluster' some files regarding their syntactic
similarity. (I am correcting the homework of some students, and since
I showed them with 'diff', that they did a simple cp they started to
change their files minimally, so that one does not see on the first
diff-glance, that the file is a copy. Note: We are not allowed to
decrease the score of anybody, just because we 'suspect' copying. I
just want to show the students, that we are not completely dumb.)
