DESCRIPTION

This module provides a rudimentary interface to the BNPNet online banking system at https://www.bnpnet.bnp.fr/. You will need either Crypt::SSLeay or IO::Socket::SSL installed for HTTPS support to work with LWP.

The interface of this module is directly taken from Simon Cozens' Finance::Bank::LloydsTSB.

WARNING

This is code for online banking, and that means your money, and that means BE CAREFUL. You are encouraged, nay, expected, to audit the source of this module yourself to reassure yourself that I am not doing anything untoward with your banking data. This software is useful to me, but is provided under NO GUARANTEE, explicit or implied.

METHODS

check_balance( username => $username, password => $password, ua => $ua )

Return a list of account (F::B::B::Account) objects, one for each of your bank accounts. You can provide to this method a WWW::Mechanize object as third argument.

Account methods

sort_code()

Return the sort code of the account. Currently, it returns an undefined value.

name()

Returns the human-readable name of the account.

account_no()

Return the account number, in the form XXX YYYYYYYYY ZZ, where X, Y and Z are numbers.

balance()

Returns the balance of the account. Note that the BNP site displays them in French format (i.e 123,75), but the string returns a number perl understands (i.e 123.75).

statements()

Return a list of Statement object (Finance::Bank::BNPParibas::Statement).

Statement methods

date()

Returns the date when the statement occured, in YYYY-MM-DD format.

value_date()

Returns the date the transfer entry to an account is considered effective, in YYYY-MM-DD format.

description()

Returns a brief description of the statement.

amount()

Returns the amount of the statement (expressed in Euros).

as_string($separator)

Returns a tab-delimited representation of the statement. By default, it uses a tabulation to separate the fields, but the user can provide its own separator.
