NAME

Number::Phone::Formatters - how to write custom formatters

DESCRIPTION

How to write custom formatters for phone numbers.

NAMING

Formatters are modules that live in the Number::Phone::Formatter::* namespace. Users only need to type the last bit of the name, without the leading Number::Phone::Formatter::, when calling the format_using method of Number::Phone.

The 'E123' formatter name is reserved and implemented by Number::Phone subclasses in their format() methods.

The 'FishAndChips' formatter name is reserved because I needed something guaranteed to not exist so I could test that it failed correctly.

METHODS

There is one compulsory method, format that you must write. It will be called as a class method, with a number in E.123 international format as its only argument, looking something like '+CC NNN NNN NNN'. The gory details are at http://www.itu.int/rec/T-REC-E.123/en but in summary, you'll get:

a plus sign
a 1, 2 or 3 digit country code
whitespace
a mixture of digits and whitespace

EXAMPLE

See Number::Phone::Formatter::Raw for an example.
