Item Description: Validate/generate credit card checksums/name

Review Synopsis:

This module makes it easy to ascertain if a credit card number is intrinsically valid.

It computes the checksum contained in the card number to determine if the card number has been entered correctly, and can report the type of card that the number came from.

This make it possible to determine if the user has entered the card number and type of card correctly. For example, a Perl/Tk script could be used by your phone support staff to make certain that the credit card information passed to them by the user seeking assistance has been transmitted correctly before attempting to log charges against it.

Note: One caveat I didn't see in the readme or perldocs: The credit card numbers passed into the routines can not contain embedded dashes. You must first either change the dashes to spaces, or remove them. Either way works fine.

[moritz]: depends on what you mean by "most stuff"
[1nickt]: I am sure I don't know about most of the stuff that is no longer controlled by humans. I do know that it's past the point of determining consumer pricing and into things that can kill me with blunt force!
[holli]: but is this really a problem 1nickt? Nobody knows how your human taxi drivers brain works either
[holli]: at least for cars, if the ai works better than a human on average, by all means let the machines drive
