    Interestingly, those are 4 of the top 6 results for a search for "longer". Perhaps it does some sort of Soundex search as a last resort if it finds no exact matches. ("LlamaCard" and "longer" are both Soundex L526.)

      Yes you are exactly right. The AUTHOR section of a POD is indexed with soundex

    I can't help with the false positives coming from

    There was a mailing list discussion within the last few months about LlamaCard. I forget the list, but it'll be archived on []. Damian responded towards the end of the thread that LlamaCard was never released, and the student who was working on it still has the source code. Large amounts of lobbying may be required to persuade him to release it. :-) Google probably has a better pointer [] to the discussion.

    • I think the discussion was on this site. At least, that's where I saw the answer from Damian.

      I'm not in any particular need of the product; I was just looking out of curiosity. But I became even more curious about the results.
