Text::Phonetic::Metaphone - Metaphone algorithm
Metaphone was developed by Lawrence Philips as a response to deficiencies in the Soundex algorithm. It is more accurate than Soundex because it uses a larger set of rules for English pronunciation. (Wikipedia, 2007)
This module is a thin wrapper around Text::Metaphone.
max_lengthcan be set to limit the length of the encoded string.
