SoundsLike package released on SqueakSource

Ron Teitelbaum

Hello all,


I have released a new package on SqueakSource that contains SoundEx and DoubleMetaphone.


This package adds soundsLike: to string


‘titlebalm’ soundsLike: ‘teitelbaum’


You can also get the phenoticStringsFor: a word to store in a database for later queries. 


PhoneticStringComparator defaultClass “SoundEx” new phoneticStringsFor: 'titlebalm' #('T341')


DoubleMetaphoneStringComparator new phoneticStringsFor: 'teitelbaum' #('TTLPM' 'TTLPM')


Let me know if you have any questions.

No rush...I am working on a custom recipe program for my wife and wanted to use it to search ingredients and still find something that was misspelled!

I did one but didn't release it anywhere.  I did metaphone and double metaphone.


Maybe I can dig it up.  When did you need it?

Does anyone know of a SoundEx algorithm in Squeak before I go write one myself?

Never hurts to ask!
