NAME ^

Text::Phonetic::Soundex - Soundex algorithm

DESCRIPTION ^

Soundex is a phonetic algorithm for indexing names by sound, as pronounced in English. Soundex is the most widely known of all phonetic algorithms. Improvements to Soundex are the basis for many modern phonetic algorithms. (Wikipedia, 2007)

If the parameter nara is set to a true value, a variant of the soundex algorithm maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) will be used.

If the parameter nocode redefines the value that will be returned if the input string contains no identifiable sounds within it.

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