Subject [codec][SUBMIT] Common Interface, and Refined Soundex
Date Fri, 15 Nov 2002 17:07:37 GMT

Refined Soundex is similar to the Soundex algorithm, but it the number
of consonant groups has been increased.  This algorithm is helpful when
search for alternative spellings, etc.  More information on this
algorithm can be found here:

Metaphone, Soundex, and RefinedSoundex all implement a common Encoder
interface, this is handy if one is implementing a system which needs to
treating the encoding algorithm as a "pluggable" component.

EncoderComparator, is merely a generalization of the SoundexComparator
for the Encoder interface.
