NAME

CheckDigits::MXX_004 - compute check digits for VAT RN (AT)

SYNOPSIS

  use Algorithm::CheckDigits;
  $vat = CheckDigits('ustid_at');
  if ($vat->is_valid('U13585627')) {
        # do something
  }
  $cn = $vat->complete('U1358562');
  # $cn = 'U13585627'
  $cd = $vat->checkdigit('U13585627');
  # $cd = '7'
  $bn = $vat->basenumber('U13585627');
  # $bn = 'U1358562'

DESCRIPTION

ALGORITHM

1.
Beginning right all numbers before the check digit are weighted alternatively 1 and 2.
2.
The total of the digits of all products is computed and then subtracted from 96.
3.
The check digit is the sum of step 3 taken modulo 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.
