DESCRIPTION ^

This module provides Taiwan Zipcode data. The original zip data can be downloaded from http://www.post.gov.tw/post/internet/down/index.html?ID=190108.

METHODS ^

get( $query )

This method takes a simple, non-ref scalar (String or Number) and returns a simple scalar (String or Number) or undef.

This method is the only method for the class and the instances of the class, it requires one argument, that is the query string.

When the query string is a number, it performs a reverse lookup (a zipcode-to-area-name lookup), and returns a long area name. Otherwise it is assumed the string means a long or short area name (described below), and returns the zipcode number.

Please reference this official table provided by the postal office website at http://download.post.gov.tw/post/download/臺灣地區郵遞區號前3碼一覽表_9912.txt for the area names that can be used in the query string.

Short names are those with zipcode numbers in the table, they are usually town names. Long names are short names prepened by their city/county names. For example, 大安區 or 瑞穗 are short names, while 臺北市大安區 is a long name. Notice there are two 大安區 in the table, one with zipcode 106, the other with zipcode 439.

Spaces must be removed in the query, you cannot use "竹 北" to perform the query, use "竹北" instead.

If the given $query is an ambiguours short name, undef is returned.
