Go Sample Code: Matching Full Name Data

Here is an example that will generate an individual full name similarity key to match with other full names using AI fuzzy matching algorithms (Bill Johnson = William Johnsten).

Go code:

            
package main

import (
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "net/http"
)

type Payload struct {
	Simkey   string
	Code     string
	Credits  int
}

func main() {
    // Create the struct variable to store the decoded JSON response
    thePayload := Payload{}

    // Call the API
    // Can error check here too replacing underscore with 'err'
    // '%20' is the ANSI space character within a URL
    response, _ := http.Get("https://api.interzoid.com/getfullnamematch?license=
                YOURAPILICENSEKEY&fullname=Jim%20Johnston")

    if response.StatusCode != 200 {
        // Report any HTTP Errors
        fmt.Println("Error: ", response.Status)

    } else {
        // Decode the JSON and print a comma-delimited response,
        // one of many ways to format the response
        _ = json.NewDecoder(response.Body).Decode(&thePayload)

        fmt.Println(thePayload.Simkey)
    }
}

            

To execute from the command line:

            
> go run YOURFILENAME.go
            

Results:
