Notes and Revision Status
Rev. 1.02 - 1 July 1996
Eradicated an errant exit command and installed the no_data subroutine.

Rev. 1.01 - 28 June 1996
The Validator verifies card numbers based on the Mod 10 Algorithm. Kudos to Aries Solis ( who originally found the needed data URL for all the cards and to Melvyn Myers ( for posting the original I hacked into a totally different animal. As for the unknown original poster of the parent version ... eternal gratitude.

The cc_form.html document is essentially the HTML form front-end for this script. Please feel free to copy/paste/edit to suit your needs. The script is platform neutral and should run without modification on Unix and NT servers alike under either Perl 4.036 or 5.001m. Executable file location modifications may be needed, just like any other script.

Please feel free to copy out the needed sections and impliment the validation part into your own scripts, all I ask is that proper credit be retained and noted in your script.

This has been fully debugged and has validated 50 different cards properly. It has ruthlessly weeded out fabricated Card Numbers. Basically.. it works just fine. If you have any problems, then it resides in how your system is configured and how you've modified the script. (read that as "Not My Problem")
