NAME ^

Locale::Geocode

DESCRIPTION ^

Locale::Geocode is a module that provides an interface with which to find codes and information on geographical locations and their administrative subdivisions as defined primarily by ISO 3166-1 and ISO 3166-2. It is the most complete ISO 3166 module available on CPAN.

Also included are, where applicable, FIPS codes.

SYNOPSIS ^

 my $lc     = new Locale::Geocode;

 # retrieve a Locale::Geocode::Territory object
 # for the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code 'US'
 my $lct    = $lc->lookup('US');

 # retrieve ISO 3166-1 information for US
 my $name   = $lct->name;   # United States
 my $alpha2 = $lct->alpha2; # US
 my $alpha3 = $lct->alpha3; # USA
 my $num    = $lct->num;    # 840

 # lookup a subdivision of US
 my $lcd    = $lct->lookup('TN');

 # retrieve ISO 3166-2 information for US-TN
 my $name   = $lcd->name;   # Tennessee
 my $code   = $lcd->code;   # TN

 # returns an array of Locale::Geocode::Division
 # objects representing all divisions of US
 my @divs   = $lct->divisions;

 # retrieve a Locale::Geocode::Division object
 # for the ISO 3166-1/ISO 3166-2 combo 'GB-ESS'
 my $lct    = $lc->lookup('GB-ESS');

 # retrieve ISO 3166-2 information for GB-ESS
