Validate::SSN

[ #14147 ]

I didn't see a module on CPAN for validation of SSN numbers.. not validating it has 9 digits, but validating the area, group and serials. I'm starting to work on what will probably be Validate::SSN (or SSN::Validate) to do this.

So, not wanting to redo any existing wheels someone may know about, let me know if you are doing this or if it has been done and I haven't found it. Or, if anyone else would find this useful, let me know.

Also, if anyone knows of any RSS feeds or fetchable lists of updated areas and high groups (didn't notice any on the SSA website), please point me to them. Right now the module has all the area info in a __DATA__ section.. so this means it will have to be updated by hand. An RSS file or something would allow me to have a script update the module automatically when any changes are done. I'd rather not screen scrape, or depend on myself to look for changes on the website. Need to stay lazy ;-)
