Business::ISBN::Data - data pack for Business::ISBN


see Business::ISBN


This data is current as of the date in the module version. At that time, the publisher codes 9990000-9999999 or 999000-999999 had not been fixed, although they had been proposed. I do not include them in the data. Some regions, including India (93), Gabon (99902), and Congo (99951) have country codes but no publisher codes. They still have entries even though you won't be able to validate any ISBNs assigned in those regions.

Business::ISBN uses this ``data pack'' to do its work. You can update Business::ISBN::Data independently of the main module as the various ISBN organizations assign new publisher codes. The ISBN agency lists these data at . It's also available as a javascript file at . The program creates the meat of this module.

Note, that as a historical artifact, some countries are actually language areas. For instance, country code 2 is ``French'', and includes several French-speaking countries.

Simply install this module over the previous version. The module is a Perl data structure, so you can install it with, or simply copy it to the right location.

Older versions of this module did not declare a version, and will work with whatever version of Business::ISBN you have despite anything the Makefile.PL might say. Some versions tracked the version of Business::ISBN. Starting in October 2008, the version is the date of the module update (as YYYYMMDD).

If you make updates, please send them to me so I can include them in future releases.
