NAME ^

Number::Phone::UK - UK-specific methods for Number::Phone

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Number::Phone;

    $daves_phone = Number::Phone->new('+44 1234 567890');

METHODS ^

The following methods from Number::Phone are overridden:

The number is valid within the national numbering scheme. It may or may not yet be allocated, or it may be reserved. Any number which returns true for any of the following methods will also be valid.

is_allocated

The number has been allocated to a telco for use. It may or may not yet be in use or may be reserved.

is_geographic

The number refers to a geographic area.

is_fixed_line

The number, when in use, can only refer to a fixed line.

(we can't tell whether a number is a fixed line, but we can tell that some are *not*).

The number, when in use, can only refer to a mobile phone.

is_pager

The number, when in use, can only refer to a pager.

is_tollfree

Callers will not be charged for calls to this number under normal circumstances.

The number, when in use, attracts special rates. For instance, national dialling at local rates, or premium rates for services.

is_adult

The number, when in use, goes to a service of an adult nature, such as porn.

is_personal

The number, when in use, goes to an individual person.

is_corporate

The number, when in use, goes to a business.

country_code

regulator

Returns informational text.

areacode

Return the area code - if applicable - for the number. If not applicable, returns undef.

areaname

Return the area name - if applicable - for the number, or undef.

location

For geographic numbers, this returns the location of the exchange to which that number is assigned, if available. Otherwise returns undef.

format

Return a sanely formatted version of the number, complete with IDD code, eg for the UK number (0208) 771-2924 it would return +44 20 87712924.

intra_country_dial_to

Within the UK numbering plan you can *always* dial 0xxxx xxxxxx for intra-country calls. In most places the leading 0$areacode is optional but in some it is required (see http://consumers.ofcom.org.uk/dial-the-code/) and over time this will apply to more areas.

country

If the number is_international, return the two-letter ISO country code.

LIMITATIONS/BUGS/FEEDBACK ^

The results are only as up-to-date as the data included from OFCOM's official documentation of number range allocations.

No attempt is made to deal with number portability.

Please report bugs at https://github.com/DrHyde/perl-modules-Number-Phone/issues, including, if possible, a test case.

I welcome feedback from users.
