NAME

       Number::Phone::NANP - NANP-specific methods for Number::Phone

DESCRIPTION

       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.

SYNOPSIS

       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

METHODS

       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.
