CheckLuhn

Overview

checkLuhn is package to assist checking PANs (credit/debit card number) or any other number that uses the Luhn algorithum to validte.

The algorithm is in the public domain and is in wide use today. It is specified in ISO/IEC 7812-1. It is not intended to be a cryptographically secure hash function; it was designed to protect against accidental errors, not malicious attacks. Most credit cards and many government identification numbers use the algorithm as a simple method of distinguishing valid numbers from mistyped or otherwise incorrect numbers.

The issuer function will can return the Card Issuer/Scheme and if that scheme is active or not
