Soundex 1.0
WHAT IS SOUNDEX? Soundex is a system that was developed by the United States government to aid in searching their vast databases of people. It allows searching by how a name sounds rather than how it is spelled. For example: Imagine a telephone operator listening to someone pronouncing their last name.

Using the soundex system as far as the computer is concerned "Ronge" and "Runge" are the same. WHAT DOES THIS MODULE DO? The REALbasic module contains a 3 useful methods: convertToSoundex, exactSoundexComparision and soundexComparision. convertToSoundex - Converts the name to soundex so you can store it exactSoundexComparision - Provide it with two last names...
