in thread Validate Country by ISO 3166 data

Thanks for pointing out the now standard Locale::Country. I've modified it to get the data from it.

package Locale::Country::TieHash; use 5.002; use strict; use warnings; use Tie::Hash; use Carp; use Locale::Country; our $VERSION = '0.01'; our @ISA = qw(Tie::StdHash); my %CountryHash = (); sub TIEHASH { my $class = shift; my $self = {}; my @countries = all_country_codes(); foreach my $country (@countries){ $CountryHash{$country} = "\U$country ".code2country($count +ry); $CountryHash{lc(code2country($country))} = "\U$country ".c +ode2country($country); } $self->{DAT} = \%CountryHash; $self->{keys} = \@countries; $self->{key_index} = 0; return bless $self, $class; } sub STORE { my ($self, $key, $value) = @_; croak __PACKAGE__,":Cannot set value for $key! READ-ONLY"; } sub DELETE { my ($self, $key, $value) = @_; croak __PACKAGE__,":Cannot delete value for $key! READ-ONLY"; } sub FETCH { my ($self, $key) = @_; $key=~/^(\w\w)\s/; my $ikey = lc($1 || $key); return $self->{DAT}{lc $ikey}; } sub EXISTS { my ($self, $key) = @_; $key=~/^(\w\w)\s/; my $ikey = lc($1 || $key); return exists $self->{DAT}{lc $ikey}; } sub DEFINED { my ($self, $key) = @_; $key=~/^(\w\w)\s/; my $ikey = lc($1 || $key); return defined $self->{DAT}{lc $ikey}; } sub FIRSTKEY { my $self = shift; $self->{key_index} = 0; return $self->{DAT}{ $self->{keys}->[$self->{key_index}++] }; } sub NEXTKEY { my $self = shift; return undef unless defined($self->{keys}[ $self->{key_index}]); return $self->{DAT}{$self->{keys}[ $self->{key_index}++] }; } sub CLEAR { croak __PACKAGE__,":Cannot clear Country Hash!
