madcode utility

The madcode utility displays strings in Soundex, METAPHONE, and IDENTAPHONE form.

Any number of white space delimited arguments can be given on the command line. The madcode utility is a diagnostic utility that can be used to determine whether two or more different strings can convert to the same phonetic encoded form.

Before you run a utility, make sure that you have set the necessary operational server environment variables. For information about the variables, see the operational server environment variables topic.
