Validate an Irish postcode

There is no national post code system in Ireland; at present the postalCode method only validates Dublin postal districts: "Dublin 6W", or "D 4" for example.

Validate a phonenumber

Ireland has phone numbers that are built similar to US and Canadian numbers however they have a couple of distinctions.

For instance the STD [Standard Trunk Dial] prefix varies in length: Dublin has the code '01', Cork has '021', Galway 091, and so on.

The phoneNumber method takes two parameters: the first is the phone number to be tested and the second is a flag indicating whether the number should be checked for a valid prefix. This boolean flag defaults to true.

sample with area code prefix testing on by default.

<?php
// Include the package
require_once 'Validate/IE.php';

$phoneNumber '467875098x';
$result Validate_IE::phoneNumber($phoneNumber);
echo 
'Test ' $phoneNumber .' : <br />';
var_export($result);
echo 
'<br />';

$phoneNumber '014142438';
$result Validate_IE::phoneNumber($phoneNumber);
echo 
'Test ' $phoneNumber .' : <br />';
var_export($result);

?>

Output :

     
Test 467875098x :
false

Test  014142438:
true
     
    

sample
