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, michael
