Soundex is an algorithm used primarily for genealogy name algorithms. It is probably the most simple of these algorithms but it can still be helpful. I have started working on some of the phonetic algorithms and decided to share my soundex and reverse soundex code in the Adobe Cookbook. You can find my post at http://cookbooks.adobe.com/post_Soundex_and_Reverse_Soundex-18217.html I plan on implementing some of the other algorithms and making it open source. I will post a link to the source when I get a little further along.
