NAME ^

Text::Phonetic::DaitchMokotoff - Daitch-Mokotoff algorithm

DESCRIPTION ^

Daitch-Mokotoff Soundex (D-M Soundex) is a phonetic algorithm invented in 1985 by genealogist Gary Mokotoff, and later improved by Randy Daitch, both of the Jewish Genealogical Society. It is a refinement of the Russell and American Soundex algorithms designed to allow matching of Slavic and Yiddish surnames with similar pronunciation but differences in spelling. (Wikipedia, 2007)

Some strings in the Daitch-Mokotoff algorithm produce ambigous results. Therefore the results are always returned as Array references, even if there is only a single result.
