    4.35: How do I find the soundex value of a string?

    (contributed by brian d foy)

    You can use the Text::Soundex module. If you want to do fuzzy or close
    matching, you might also try the "String::Approx", and
    "Text::Metaphone", and "Text::DoubleMetaphone" modules.

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
