NAME

Text::Phonetic::Phonix - Phonix algorithm

DESCRIPTION

Phonix is an improved version of Soundex, developed by T.N. Gadd. Phonix has been incorporated into a number of WAIS implementations, including freeWAIS.

There seem to be two variants of the Phonix algorithm. One which also includes the first letter in the numeric code, and one that doesn't. This module is using the later variant.
