Re: Feature request: #a (approximate matching) only for spaces

Being skeptical from the beginning, I've just found that fuzzy
matching might not be much better. Doing lsof | fzf and searching for
"listen tcp", gives:

Spotify     459 sgniazdowski   48u    IPv4 0x641c23b7a67dd4e3
0t0       TCP localhost:4371 (LISTEN)

but also tons of other stuff like:

firefox   82115 sgniazdowski  txt      REG                1,1
94656 133710834 /Library/Fonts/DecoTypeNaskh.ttc

where "Library/Fonts/DecoTypeN" is matched. That's even worse than
*a*b*c..., there is no "*l*i*s*t*e*n*t*c*p*" embedded. Guess that what's
important is degree of similarity and showing reasonable matches

Best regards,
