NAME

       Regexp::Common::SEN -- provide regexes for Social-Economical Numbers.

SYNOPSIS

        use Regexp::Common qw /SEN/;

        while (<>) {
            /^$RE{SEN}{USA}{SSN}$/    and  print "Social Security Number\n";
        }

DESCRIPTION

       Please consult the manual of Regexp::Common for a general description of the works of this
       interface.

       Do not use this module directly, but load it via Regexp::Common.

   $RE{SEN}{USA}{SSN}{-sep}
       Returns a pattern that matches an American Social Security Number (SSN).  SSNs consist of
       three groups of numbers, separated by a hypen ("-").  This pattern only checks for a valid
       structure, that is, it validates whether a number is valid SSN, was a valid SSN, or maybe
       a valid SSN in the future. There are almost a billion possible SSNs, and about 400 million
       are in use, or have been in use.

       If "-sep=P" is specified, the pattern P is used as the separator between the groups of
       numbers.

       Under "-keep" (see Regexp::Common):

       $1  captures the entire SSN.

       $2  captures the first group of digits (the area number).

       $3  captures the second group of digits (the group number).

       $4  captures the third group of digits (the serial number).
