Number::Phone::NANP - NANP-specific methods for Number::Phone
This 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. 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.
This module should not be used directly. It will be loaded as necessary by Number::Phone: use Number::Phone; 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
The following methods from Number::Phone are overridden: new The constructor, you should never have to call this yourself. To create an object the canonical incantation is "Number::Phone-"new('+1 ...')>. operator For some countries operator data is available. is_valid The number is valid within the numbering scheme. It may or may not yet be allocated, or it may be reserved. is_geographic NANP-globals like 1-800 aren't geographic, the rest are. is_mobile NANP-globals like 1-800 aren't mobile. For most others we just don't know because the data isn't published. libphonenumber has data for *some* countries, so we use that if we can. is_fixed_line NANP-globals are fixed lines, for the rest we generally don't know with some exceptions as per is_mobile above. is_drama The number is a '555' number. Numbers with the D, E, and F digits set to 555 are not allocated to real customers, and are intended for use in fiction. eg 212 555 2368 for Ghostbusters. NB, despite Ghostbusters above, only 555-0100 to 555-0199 are actually reserved. is_government Area code 710 is reserved for the US Feds, but apparently only one number in the whole area code works. is_tollfree The number is free to the caller. 800, 844, 855, 866, 877 and 888 "area codes" is_specialrate The number is charged at a higher rate than normal. The 900 "area code" and some parts of 242 and 246 (Bahamas and Barbados). is_personal The number is a "personal" number. The 500, 533, 544, 566 and 577 "area codes". country_code Returns 1. regulator 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. areacode Return the area code for the number. areaname 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". subscriber Return the subscriber part of the number. format Return a sanely formatted version of the number, complete with IDD code.
