This software implements the Daitch Mokotoff Soundex algorithm. You can use it as a command line program, or a java class, and encorporate it into your own Java software.
More information on this soundex system can be found on these web sites:
To use it as a program, do this:
java DMSoundex --version (or -v or -V) prints out a version number java DMSoundex --help (or -h or -H) prints out this help information java DMSoundex Self test: prints out names and codes java DMSoundex <name> Prints the DM soundex(es) for this nameSo if you enter java DMSoundex levy you will get 870000, and so on. If you do not supply a name, then DMSoundex will run it's self test suite, printing out a list of names and their Daitch Mokotoff codes.
To use this class from java code, you need to create a DMSoundex object, and then call one of three methods, as shown below:
String r1 ; String r2 ; String ra ; DMSoundex dms = new DMSoundex() ; r1 = dms.soundexes("daich") ; r2 = dms.sencode("daich") ; ra = dms.soundex("daich") ; r1 will now contain: "350000 340000" r2 will contain "350000" ra will be an array with two entries, "350000" and "340000"
