NAME

CheckDigits::M10_010 - compute check digits for Postscheckkonti (CH)

SYNOPSIS

  use Algorithm::CheckDigits;
  $pck = CheckDigits('postcheckkonti');
  if ($pck->is_valid('85-12345678-7')) {
        # do something
  }
  $cn = $pck->complete('85-12345678');
  # $cn = '85-12345678-7'
  $cd = $pck->checkdigit('85-12345678-7');
  # $cd = '7'
  $bn = $pck->basenumber('85-12345678-7');
  # $bn = '85-12345678'

DESCRIPTION

ALGORITHM

1.
The sequence of digits is processed left to right. For the first digit we assume a carry forward of 0.
2.
For each digit d(i) the carry forward cf(i) is the digit at the the position p in the sequence ( 0, 9, 4, 6, 8, 2, 7, 1, 3, 5 ), where p is (d(i) + cf(i-1)) modulo 10.
3.
The check digit is the difference of the sum from step 3 to the next multiple of 10.

METHODS

is_valid($number)
Returns true only if $number consists solely of numbers and the last digit is a valid check digit according to the algorithm given above.
 
Returns false otherwise,
complete($number)
The check digit for $number is computed and concatenated to the end of $number.
 
Returns the complete number with check digit or '' if $number does not consist solely of digits and spaces.
basenumber($number)
Returns the basenumber of $number if $number has a valid check digit.
 
Return '' otherwise.
checkdigit($number)
Returns the checkdigit of $number if $number has a valid check digit.
 
Return '' otherwise.

EXPORT

None by default.
