NAME

SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17 - Provides a base class for the TAG17x for a SWIFT message.

SYNOPSIS

  use SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17;
  my $tag17 = SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17->new();

DESCRIPTION

This class provides a a base class for the TAG17x family of classes.

The class is primarily used as a base class for other TAG17x classes, for instance TAG17T and TAG17U.

CONSTRUCTOR

new( INDICATOR=>1 );

    Instantiates a new Tag17 object.

    It is still unclear to the author if there exists a clean TAG17 holding a boolean type of value.

    If you use this class to directly instantiate a clean TAG17, then please contact me so that I can take appropriate action.

    INDICATOR=>

    Optional scalar value. Default value: false

    If given with any true value, the object will provide a Yes or logically True value in the string() method.

    If omitted, or given with a false value, the object will provide a No or logically False value in the string() method.

PUBLIC CLASS METHODS

Class methods are always called with the fully qualified name, like:

 print SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17->VERSION();

(The new() constructor is a typical example of a class method.)

VERSION()

Will return the version of this Perl module. (This method is inherited from the UNIVERSAL class.)

TAG_ID()

This method is probably never called by an application.

The method is primarily provided to be overridden by classes inheriting from SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17, like for instance TAG17T and TAG17U.

The TAG17 class returns nothing but a zero length string.

INDICATOR_TRUE()

This method is probably never called by an application.

The method is primarily provided to be overridden by classes inheriting from SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17, like for instance TAG17T and TAG17U.

Returns a scalar value with the logically True boolean value stored in the object.

INDICATOR_FALSE()

This method is probably never called by an application.

The method is primarily provided to be overridden by classes inheriting from SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag17, like for instance TAG17T and TAG17U.

Returns a scalar value with the logically False boolean value stored in the object.

PUBLIC OBJECT METHODS

provide()

An alias for string(). Will execute exactly the same code as the string() method.

string()

Will return a fully formatted string containing a TAG17 for a SWIFT message.
