Validate a canadian postcode

The postal code is a six-character, uniformly structured alphanumeric code in the form of ANA NAN where "A" represents an alphabetic character and "N" represents a numeric character.

The postal code is made up of two segments:

The first, the Forward Sortation Area (FSA), is a combination of three characters (alpha - numeric - alpha).

It identifies a major geographic area in an urban or a rural location.

The third character of the FSA segment (M4B), in conjunction with the first two characters, describes an exact area of a city or town or other geographic area.

The second segment, Local Delivery Unit (LDU), is a combination of three characters (numeric - alpha - numeric).

It identifies the smallest delivery unit within a forward sortation area.

The LDU, identified by the last three characters of the postal code, allows for a final sort within an FSA.

In Urban Areas, the last three digits may indicate a specific city block (one side of a street between two intersecting streets), a single building or, in some cases, a large volume mail receiver.

In Rural Areas, the last three digits (LDU), together with the FSA, identify a specific Rural community.

First parameter of the method is the post code to validate.

An optional parameter for limite the request to a province.

$result Validate_CA::phoneNumber($phoneNumber);
echo 
'Test ' $phoneNumber .' : <br />';
