Locale::BR - Identify Brazilian states by two-letter codes and vice-versa
use Locale::BR qw( :all );
my $state = code2state('RJ'); # 'Rio de Janeiro'
my $code = state2code('Amapá'); # 'AM'
my @states = all_state_names();
my @codes = all_state_codes();
This modules exports nothing by default, so you'll have to use the ':all' export tag in order to import the subroutines to your namespace. Or you can explicitly name any of the following subroutines:
Takes a state code and returns a string containing the name of the state. If the code is not a valid state code, returns undef.
This subroutine is case insensitive. For instance, 'mg', 'Mg', 'MG' and even 'mG' will all return 'Minas Gerais'.
Takes a state name and returns a string containing its respective code. If the name is not a valid state name, returns undef.
This subroutine is case insensitive and understands state names with and without accentuation. For instance, 'Amapá', 'amapá', 'Amapa' and 'amapa' will all return 'AP'.
Returns an alphabetically ordered list of all Brazilian state names.
Returns an alphabetically ordered list of all Brazilian state codes.
