DESCRIPTIONThis is a base class which encapsulates that information about phone numbers in the North American Numbering Plan (NANP) which are common to all NANP countries - that is, those whose international dialling code is +1. If you are dealing with phone numbers in any of those countries, you should "use" this module. It will then load the country-specific modules for you as needed.
Country-specific modules should inherit from this module and provide their own versions of methods as necessary. However, they should not provide an "is_valid" method or a constructor.
SYNOPSISin a program:
my $phone_number = Number::Phone->new('+1 202 418 1440');
# $phone_number is now a Number::Phone::NANP::US
my $other_phone_number = Number::Phone->new('+1 866 623 2282');
# $phone_number is non-geographic so is a Number::Phone::NANP
in a subclass:
package Number::Phone::NANP::CA; use base 'Number::Phone::NANP';
METHODSThe following methods from Number::Phone are overridden:
- The number is valid within the numbering scheme. It may or may not yet be allocated, or it may be reserved.
- Returns 1.
- Returns informational text relevant to the whole NANP. Note that when this method is inherited by a subclass it returns undef meaning ``not known'', but returns information about the NANPA when called on an object of class Number::Phone::NANP.
- Return the area code for the number.
- Return the name for the area code, if applicable, otherwise returns undef. For instance, for a number beginning with +1 201 200 it would return ``Jersey City, NJ''.
- Return the subscriber part of the number.
- Return a sanely formatted version of the number, complete with IDD code.
