Subject: fname to search in the names of a gedcom file for a substring
Dear Doug -
I just finished writing a small DOS utility program that allows you to
search in the names of a gedcom file for a substring. the program
has three algos implemented, one for exact search, one for
soundex-like search and one for an approximate search, where you
can specify a given number of mistakes form an exact match. I
thought that this might also be useful for some of the other people
working on long term fieldsites when they have to match new
information to a given data set. it is currently limited to 8000 names
but that can be increased.
best to both of you and have a nice (holi??) day,
