NAME

CheckDigits::M89_001 - compute check digits for VAT Registration Number (LU)

SYNOPSIS

  use Algorithm::CheckDigits;
  $ustid = CheckDigits('ustid_lu');
  if ($ustid->is_valid('13669580')) {
        # do something
  }
  $cn = $ustid->complete('136695');
  # $cn = '13669580'
  $cd = $ustid->checkdigit('13669580');
  # $cd = '80'
  $bn = $ustid->basenumber('13669580');
  # $bn = '136695'

DESCRIPTION

ALGORITHM

1.
The checksum is the whole number taken modulo 89.

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.
