    Python: Querying Data by Sound

    Posted this article recently on how to query data by sounds using Double Metaphone. Was a pretty interesting tutorial with a lot of examples and an easy read, despite what can be considered an intermediate to advanced level topic. Check it out and let me know your thoughts or any questions you might have about the concepts inside. Any other insight into querying data by sound with Python and MariaDB would be appreciated to!

    Have fig 1 and fig 2 been transposed?

    Interesting article.

    I hadn't come across Double Metaphone before. In the 1980's/90's I used soundex extensively when querying data files. The top result(s) displayed were those that had a perfect match and the ones beneath were the soundex matched ones. It was of great help when trying to determine duplicate entries when a name/address had say been mistyped on entry. It helped prevent another record for the same person/address being added and to find the existing miss-typed one.

All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS.
