SYNOPSIS ^

        use Business::US::USPS::WebTools::AddressStandardization;

        my $verifier = Business::US::USPS::WebTools::AddressStandardization->new( {
                UserID   => $ENV{USPS_WEBTOOLS_USERID},
                Password => $ENV{USPS_WEBTOOLS_PASSWORD},
                Testing  => 1,
                } );

        my $hash = $verifier->verify_address(
                FirmName => '',
                Address1 => '',
                Address2 => '6406 Ivy Lane',
                City     => 'Greenbelt',
                State    => 'MD',
                Zip5     => '',

        if( $verifier->is_error )
                {
                warn "Oh No! $verifier->{error}{description}\n";
                }
        else
                {
                print join "\n", map { "$_: $hash->{$_}" }

                }

DESCRIPTION ^

*** THIS IS ALPHA SOFTWARE ***

This module implements the Address Standardization web service from the US Postal Service. It is a subclass of Business::US::USPS::WebTools.

verify_address( KEY, VALUE, ... )

The verify_address method takes the following keys, which come directly from the USPS web service interface:

        FirmName        The name of the company
        Address1        The suite or apartment
        Address2        The street address
        City            The name of the city
        State           The two letter state abbreviation
        Zip5            The 5 digit ZIP code
        Zip4            The 4 digit extension to the ZIP code

It returns an anonymous hash with the same keys, but the values are the USPS's canonicalized address, plus three additional keys:

        DeliveryPoint   The 2 digit extension to the ZIP+4 code
        CarrierRoute    The 4 character postal carrier route
        ReturnText      An error message when multiple addresses are found

If there is an error, the hash values will be the empty string, and the error flag is set. Check is with is_error:

        $verifier->is_error;

See the is_error documentation in Business::US::USPS::WebTools for more details on error information.
