24Improvement to the permutations
- Jun 1, 2001Hi. This is a great program -- seems to be thorough and fast. From
my own experience, though, I'd like to suggest another letter
My grandfather's family name, Mayrent, is actually found in the EIDB
under Magrant and Margrent, both of which I've actually encountered as
names on junk mail myself! Yet neither of these permutations comes up
in the program.
In the first instance, a "g" for "y" substitution makes sense across
the board. In the second case, with an extra "r" thrown in, I don't
know how to think about it -- on the other hand, the EIDB alternate
spellings program came up with it okay, so maybe you don't need to.
Anyway, thanks for a great program.
