NAME

SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag30T - Provide a TAG30T for a SWIFT message.

SYNOPSIS

  use SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag30T;
  my $tag30T = SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag30T->new( YEAR=>2003, MONTH=>2, DAY=>17 );

DESCRIPTION

Tag 30T is used to provide the Trade Date in a SWIFT message.

This class is derived from SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag30 and the reader is strongly encouraged to read the documentation for that class as well.

CONSTRUCTOR

new( YEAR=>2003, MONTH=>2, DAY=>17 );

    Instantiates a new Tag30T object.

    The parameters may be given in arbitrary order. All parameters have built-in default values. If the calling application doesn't provide a specific parameter at all, the object will apply the default value to that parameter. Beware that the default values may be invalid in a SWIFT message.

    YEAR=>

    Technically optional but logically required. Default value: 0 (zero). Beware that the default value is invalid in a SWIFT message.

    A numeric scalar value that will be part of the value date in TAG30T.

    MONTH=>

    Technically optional but logically required. Default value: 0 (zero). Beware that the default value is invalid in a SWIFT message.

    A numeric scalar value that will be part of the value date in TAG30T. Valid values are 1 - 12, inclusive.

    DAY=>

    Technically optional but logically required. Default value: 0 (zero). Beware that the default value is invalid in a SWIFT message.

    A numeric scalar value that will be part of the value date in TAG30T. Valid values are 1 - 31, inclusive.

PUBLIC CLASS METHODS

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

 print SWIFT::Factory::Tag::Tag30T::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()

It is very unlikeley that the calling application will benefit from calling this method. The method is providing the Tag ID which is the difference between a TAG30 and a TAG30T. By providing this method in this class, the equivalent method in the base class is overridden and a TAG30T is provided by string() instead of a TAG30.

FIGURES_IN_YEAR();

The method provides an important difference between the base class and Tag30T, namely the number of figures allowed in the YEAR=> in the constructor.

PUBLIC OBJECT METHODS

borken()

A really broken alias for invalid(). Will execute exactly the same code as the invalid() method.

invalid()

Will return the number of errors detected in the objects instance data.

The class can never be charged to guarrantee that the provided string() will be fully compliant with the SWIFT standards or SWIFT verification rules. It can only point out known problems in the object as it is currently loaded.

BETA

Please beware that the current implementation of invalid() doesn't check anything at all. Consider it a placeholder for now. When time permits, the method will be filled with validation code.

Return value:

As it stands, the method will always return zero since it wasn't able to discover any error at all.

provide()

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

string()

Will return a fully formatted string containing a TAG30T for a SWIFT message.
