Given two strings S1 and S2 and three operations (Insert, delete, change) each with different costs, the sequence of operations to convert S1 to S2 is well known as the string editing problem. The minimum cost of transforming S1 to S2 is known as the the 'Edit Distance' between the strings S1 and S2. Computing the edit distance between strings has immense applications, in fact we use edit distance in our day to day life , edit distance is what gets computed when we 'diff' two files. Computing edit script is more general than just computing the edit distance, Hirschberg's algorithm gives a space efficient dynamic programming formulation for computing the edit script, the algorithm is recursive in nature. In this work we implement a non recursive version of the Hirschberg's algorithm. Our context of this problem is to build a highly area efficient VLSI hardware.
