Validate Israeli ID numbers (TZ)

Usage: iltz.exe [TZ]... [COMMAND]

  generate  Generates a list of valid TZ values
  help      Print this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)

  [TZ]...  A list of ID numbers (TZ) to validate

  -h, --help  Print help

CLI Examples

> iltz 999999998 999999999
999999998 true
999999999 false

> iltz generate 50 100

As a dependency

To use it in your own Rust projects, run this command:

cargo add il_tz

Alternatively, add this to your Cargo.toml:

il_tz = "0.1.3"

Warning Verify the latest version number on crates.io.

Rust Example

This example shows how to convert an integer to a TZ, how to convert a string to a TZ, and validating them.

use il_tz::{int2tz, str2tz, tz2str, validate};

fn main() {
    // A valid TZ example
    let valid = int2tz(999_999_998).unwrap();
    println!("{} {}", tz2str(&valid), validate(&valid));

    // An invalid TZ example
    let invalid = int2tz(999_999_999).unwrap();
    println!("{} {}", tz2str(&invalid), validate(&invalid));

    // Leading zeros can be used or omitted
    let tz1 = str2tz("000000141").unwrap();
    let tz2 = str2tz("00141").unwrap();
    let tz3 = int2tz(141).unwrap();
    assert_eq!(tz1, tz2);
    assert_eq!(tz1, tz3);

Note This library does not validate the ID number (TZ) against any sort of population database, it only validates it mathematically.
