    Soundex and arrays

    Hey all,

    Two things.

    1. Anyone give me some hints on how the soundex algorithm works.

    2. How to go about deleting the information in an array from the buffer.

    As to deleting from an array, that would be more difficult to say generally - the very basic method is that you move everything after the stuff you are removing "up" - but there are many different ways that this could be made more efficient by using some different forms of data structures, if you need to delete a lot.

    Compilers can produce warnings - make the compiler programmers happy: Use them!
    Please don't PM me for help - and no, I don't do help over instant messengers.
