NAME

CheckDigits::MXX_003 - compute check digits for DEM

SYNOPSIS

use Algorithm::CheckDigits;

\$dem = CheckDigits('dem');

if (\$dem->is_valid('GD0645027K1')) {
# do something
}

\$cn = \$dem->complete('GD0645027K');
# \$cn = 'GD0645027K1'

\$cd = \$dem->checkdigit('GD0645027K1');
# \$cd = '1'

\$bn = \$dem->basenumber('GD0645027K1');
# \$bn = 'GD0645027K'

DESCRIPTION

ALGORITHM

The algorithm is a variation of the Verhoeff scheme.

0

All letters are changed to numbers.

1

All digits are permutated according to a permutation table.

2

The permutated digits are combined using a diëder table. The first with the second, the result with the third, this result with the fourth and so on.

3

The result of the last combination in the diëder table is in such a way combined that the result is 0 (zero). The number used for this combination is the checksum.

For details look at the source.

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.

None by default.
