val iter_matches : ?⁠cutoff:int -> f:((int * int) -> unit) -> hashable:'a Base.Hashtbl.Key.t -> 'a array -> 'a array -> unit

iter_matches ?cutoff ~f ~hashable a b diffs the arrays a and b (as in /usr/bin/diff), and calls f on each element of the longest common subsequence in increasing order. The arguments of f are the indices in a and b, respectively, of that element.

The cutoff is an upper bound on the minimum edit distance between a and b. When cutoff is exceeded, iter_matches returns a correct, but not necessarily minimal diff. It defaults to about sqrt (Array.length a + Array.length b).
