DESCRIPTION

This module offers functionality to validate, format and generate Danish phonenumbers using object-oriented programming.

Please see:

The contructor can recognise telephone numbers is the following formats as Danish phonenumbers.

  • 12345678

  • 4512345678

  • +4512345678

SUBROUTINES AND METHODS

new({ phonenumber => $phonenumber, template => $template })

For valid phone number formatting please refer to "phonenumber".

phonenumber($phonenumber, $template)

This is accessor to the phonenumber attribute.

Provided with a valid phone number parameter the object's phone number attribute is set.

If the accessor is not provided with a phonenumber parameter, the one defined is in the object is returned.

See also: "validate" in Business::DK::Phonenumber, which is used internally to validate the phonenumber parameter.

Valid phone numbers have to abide to the following formatting:

  • +<international prefix><8 digit phonenumber>

  • <international prefix><8 digit phonenumber>

  • <8 digit phonenumber>

The prefixed plus sign and space used as separator are optional as are the international dialing code.

The phone number can be formatted in anyway separated using whitespace characters.

template($template)

This is accessor to the template attribute.

Provided with a valid template parameter the object's template attribute is set.

If the accessor is not provided with a template parameter, the one defined is in the object is returned.

See also: "validate_template" in Business::DK::Phonenumber, which is used internally to validate the template parameter.
