KtoBlzCheck v1.12 API Documentation



Download page:

KtoBLZCheck is a library to check account numbers and bank codes of German banks.

Quick Start

Both a library for other programs as well as a short command-line tool is available. It is possible to check pairs of account numbers and bank codes (BLZ) of German banks, and to map bank codes (BLZ) to the clear-text name and location of the bank.

For using the library in your own application, you have to include "ktoblzcheck.h" and then use AccountNumberCheck and IbanCheck; see there for more information.

Python bindings are provided as well (needs compiling with --enable-python).

For compile instructions concerning MS Windows, please see the file README.WIN32.
