NAME ^

Text::Phonetic::Metaphone - Metaphone algorithm

DESCRIPTION ^

Metaphone was developed by Lawrence Philips as a response to deficiencies in the Soundex algorithm. It is more accurate than Soundex because it uses a larger set of rules for English pronunciation. (Wikipedia, 2007)

This module is a thin wrapper around Text::Metaphone.

The parameter max_length can be set to limit the length of the encoded string.
