NAME

Business::CreditCard::Object - a Credit Card object

SYNOPSIS

        my $card = Business::CreditCard::Object->new("4929-4929-4929-4929");

        if ($card->is_valid) { 
                print "Card " . $card->number . " is a " . $card->type;
        }

DESCRIPTION

This provides an OO interface around the Business::CreditCard module. You instantiate it with a card number, and can ask if it is valid, for a standardised version of the card number, and what type of card it is.

METHODS

new

        my $card = Business::CreditCard::Object->new("4929-4929-4929-4929");

Construct a new Card object. The card number can contain optional numbers and/or spaces.

is_valid

This computes the checksum for the card given and returns a boolean value for whether or not the number passes this check.

type

This returns the type of card given. See Business::CreditCard for a list of possible values.

number

This returns a standardised version of the card number as a string of digits with all spaces and minus signs removed. The object will also stringify to this value.
