in reply to Call Subroutines by Approximate Name

Cool idea! But rather than Text::Soundex, you could use String::Approx and get a better match, I think.

    Thanks for the idea. I chose Text::Soundex because it was available in the standard distribution.

    Of course in a perfect world, the fuzzy matching would be user configurable. Hmm...

    Update

    As of version 0.05, Sub::Approx now supports user-configurable fuzzy matching. Get it from CPAN.
