PRL Software's Soundex SFX for PalmOS
Sample application
Sample application

Version 1.0 Released September 20, 2001

The Soundex Extension generates a Soundex code (up to four-characters). This code can then be used to evaluate the similarity of two or more strings. The Soundex code is generated using the phonetics (sounds) within a string.

This is especially useful when searching for a name that may be spelled various ways:

Soundex ("Randal") returns RNTL and

Soundex ("Rendull") also returns RNTL.

Soundex ("Rodger") returns RGR

Soundex ("Roger") also returns RGR

There is also a function that compares two strings, SoundexDifference. This function will return:

4 when the soundex codes match perfectly

0 when the soundex codes are completely different

1 - 3 when the soundex codes are somewhat alike to very alike.

This extension is manufactured by PRL Software and is marketed by NOTE: This extension is no longer supported by PRL Software, is not supported by PalmDataPro, and is available on an AS IS basis only.
