  Description     : Implementation of the soundex algorithm

This module implements the original soundex algorithm developed by Robert
Russell and Margaret Odell, patented in 1918 and 1922, as well as a
variation called "American Soundex" used for US census data, and current
maintained by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

This module is being deprecated from the perl base distribution in
5.18.0, so it is planned to package it separately to provide continuity.
The perl 5.18 packages will depend on, recommend or suggest deprecated
modules for one release cycle, as appropriate.
