Text::DoubleMetaphone_PP - A Phonetic Algorithm to Encode Words
use Text::DoubleMetaphone_PP qw ( double_metaphone_pp ); my($code1, $code2) = double_metaphone_pp("Word");
This module is a pure perl implimentation of a "sounds like" algorithm based off of Lawrence Phillips' Double Metaphone method which, was published in the June, 2000 issue of C/C++ Users Journal. The Double Metaphone algorithm produce two encodings for each word passed to it creating a more accurate representation of words that may be pronounced in multiple ways. For additional information about the Double Metaphone algorithm refer to: http:/en.wikipedia.ort/wiki/Metaphone
