compare-names

Fuzzily compare two arrays of names.

This module is intended mainly for comparing research paper author lists.

It takes two arrays of authors and simply returns a boolean if the authors look like they are the same.

var compareNames = require('compare-names');
compareNames(
    ['Izbicki, R', 'Weyhing, B. T. I.', 'Backer, L'],
    ['Izbicki, R 3rd', 'Weyhing, B. T.', 'Backer, L', 'Caoili, E.', 'M.l Vaitkevicius, V.K.']
);
// Returns true

See the unit tests for more examples.
