## Iranian National Code Algorithm

hello again .

i think this post must be interesting for iranian peoples . this theme is completely ripped from my friend soroush dalili weblog finally don’t forgot this post and algorithm was published for educational purposes only so author is not held responsible , used for any other purposes than the one stated above.

Each person in Iran has a national code which is called “Code Melli”. And, its algorithm is very similar to ISBN algorithm:

The rules are:

1- This number has 10 digits like: C[1] C[2] C[3] C[4] C[5] C[6] C[7] C[8] C[9] C[10]

2- 3 digits of left must not be equal to 000 (c[1]c[2]c[3]000)

3- C[10] is a control digit (like ISBN algorithm)

The formula to determine C[10] is:

Let A = (C[1]*10)+ (C[2]*9)+ (C[3]*8)+ (C[4]*7)+ (C[5]*6)+ (C[6]*5)+ (C[7]*4)+ (C[8]*3)+ (C[9]*2)

Let B = A MOD 11

If B == 0 Then C[10]=B Else C[10] = 11-B

**This JavaScript function is useful to validation:**

function IsIRNationalCode(theNum)

{

if(theNum.length!=10)

{

return false;

}

else

{

if(theNum.substr(0,3)==’000′) return false;

var check = 0;

for(var i=0;i

{

var num = theNum.substr(i,1);

check += num*(10-i)

}

if(check%11)

{

return false;

}

else

{

return true;

}

}

}

//—————End of Iranian national code checker function—————

True-False

good luck and have fun
