Error validating cardaccount number checksum


Git Hub updates the interface a bit faster, waiting until it has enough information to figure out the credit card type.Initially, there are several credit card icons showing.It consists of one or more digits computed by an algorithm from the other digits (or letters) in the sequence input.With a check digit, one can detect simple errors in the input of a series of characters (usually digits) such as a single mistyped digit or some permutations of two successive digits.Once the actual credit card type is determined, all of the icons fade except the one representing the credit card type.

This would catch any single-digit error, as such an error would always change the sum, but does not catch any transposition errors (switching two digits) as re-ordering does not change the sum.In choosing a system, a high probability of catching errors is traded off against implementation difficulty; simple check digit systems are easily understood and implemented by humans but do not catch as many errors as complex ones, which require sophisticated programs to implement.A desirable feature is that left-padding with zeros should not change the check digit.Businesses committed to quality will include validity checks as part of their routine software.Three main problems can occur with input transactions: submitting the wrong data to the system, the submitting of data by an unauthorized person, or asking the system to perform an unacceptable function.A check digit is a form of redundancy check used for error detection on identification numbers, such as bank account numbers, which are used in an application where they will at least sometimes be input manually.
