Luhn Build Status

Adds methods to Numeric and String to generate and validate Luhn checksums.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'moeffju-luhn', :require => 'luhn'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install moeffju-luhn

The gem's name is 'luhn', so you need to require luhn.


Numeric (Fixnum, Bignum):

4100410382.luhn?  #=> true
410041038.luhn    #=> 2
410041038.luhn!   #=> 4100410382

4100410648.luhn?  #=> true
410041064.luhn    #=> 8
410041064.luhn!   #=> 4100410648

And for Strings:

'4 10041064 8'.luhn?  #=> true
'4 10041064'.luhn     #=> "8"
'4 10041064'.luhn!    #=> "4100410648"
