NAME

CheckDigits::M11_017 - compute check digits for EC-No, EINECS, ELINCS

SYNOPSIS

  use Algorithm::CheckDigits;
  $ecno = CheckDigits('ecno');
  if ($ecno->is_valid('200-236-6')) {
        # do something
  }
  $cn = $ecno->complete('200-236-');
  # $cn = '200-236-6'
  $cd = $ecno->checkdigit('200-236-6');
  # $cd = '6'
  $bn = $ecno->basenumber('200-236-6');
  # $bn = '200-236-'

DESCRIPTION

ALGORITHM

1.
From left to right all digits are multiplied with their position in the sequence.
2.
The sum of all products is computed.
3.
The sum of step 2 is taken modulo 11.
 
The checkdigit is the last digit of the result.

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.
