General Questions

What are "abbreviations" and why should I care?

Abbreviated matches allow "1" to be used in place of "one" or "won", "2" instead of "to", etc, depending on your language of choice, of course. This is a big help for phone numbers containg 1's and 0's, because on many phone key pads, these numbers not mapped to any letters, and that makes it impossible to find matches for words that contain a 1 or 0. With abbrevations, however, you have a much better chance of finding something, even if the match may seem a little obscure.

I want to compare more than 4 prefixes.

You can do is this way: initially, compare the first four prefixes. Then, keep the best one and compare it with the next three and so on until you are done.
