Postal / Zip Code Validation


I have been asked to validate postal/zip codes against the countries like Netherland, United Kingdom, Spain, Italy, Belgium etc. Can anyone suggest that how can I do it programmatically using perl script or javascript preferablly.

In Perl, you can make use of hash. Store the country names and zip codes in hash as keys and values respectively. For ex.,
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. my %zip_code;
  2. $zip_code{Spain} = 'xxxxx' ;

That's the generic way of doing it. But I believe, there should be specific modules available in CPAN for the purpose.

The topic that you are replying to is about a year and half old. That said, I doubt the OP is still working on this. While I thank you for the information (as I will probably peruse it), please keep in mind the age of the post you are replying to.



UPDATE: ptpro: I don't know if you have gone to this site recently, but if you do, you will be presented with the following message:

This application is currently offline. To enable the application, remove the app_offline.htm file from the application root directory.
Might want to test those links first.
