NOTE

If the modulus check shows the account number as valid this means that the account number is a possible account number for the sorting code but does'nt necessarily mean that it's an account number being used at that sorting code. Any account details found as invalid should be checked with the account holder where possible.

CONSTRUCTOR

The constructor simply expects debug flag, which is optional. By the default the debug flag is off.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use BankAccount::Validator::UK;

    # Debug is turned off.
    my $account1 = BankAccount::Validator::UK->new;

    # Debug is turned on.
    my $account2 = BankAccount::Validator::UK->new(debug => 1);

METHODS

is_valid($sort_code, $account_number)

It expects two parameters i.e. the sort code and the account number.The sort code can be either nn-nn-nn or nnnnnn format. If the account number starts with 0 then its advisable to pass in as string i.e. '0nnnnnnn'.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use BankAccount::Validator::UK;

    my $account = BankAccount::Validator::UK->new;
    print "[10-79-99][88837491] is valid.\n"
        if $account->is_valid(107999, 88837491);

    print "[18-00-02][00000190] is valid.\n"
        if $account->is_valid('18-00-02', '00000190');

get_trace()

Returns the trace information about each rule that applied to the given sort code and account number.

    use strict; use warnings;
    use Data::Dumper;
    use BankAccount::Validator::UK;

    my $account = BankAccount::Validator::UK->new;
    print "[87-14-27][09123496] is valid.\n"
        if $account->is_valid('871427', '09123496');

    print "Trace information:\n" . Dumper($account->get_trace);
