in reply to Searching for homophones and words that are similar

Maybe Text::Soundex is useful?

There are also several other soundex related modules that could be checked.

    That search won't show Text::Metaphone. IMHO a much better (or more usable in Dutch) module than Text::SoundEx

    YMMV

    Soundex is a really bad algorithm except for mechanically (i.e. using sticks and cardboard) comparing short(!) names(!) commonly in use in the USA. See Re^2: Search for similar strings - to standardise for details.

    That looks very useful and the sort of thing I was searching for. The Synopsis looks promising.

    Thank you
