comparing addresses and names

Hi,

I'm looking for an algorithm, better implemented in c#, for comparing names
(of companies, individuals etc.) and addresses.

Thanks,
Daniel

Try the String.Compare method.

The String.Compare is quite similar to regular "equal" operation. I'm
looking for an algorithm which would know that "Sun Microsystem" = "Sun
Microsystems" and that "st" = "street" and so on.

Thanks for you help Adrian.

What you are looking is a fuzzy search , google that term.
