       ktoblzcheck - Check Account and BLZ (bank routing code)


       ktoblzcheck [--returncode] [--file=<datafile>] <bank-id> <account-id>


       This manual page documents briefly the ktoblzcheck application.

       ktoblzcheck  is  a  program that will check a given account and blz for
       the bank being valid and the account being valid  using  some  checksum
       calculations,  if supported for that particular bank. The output is the
       clear-text name of the bank specified by  <bank-id>,  and  whether  the
       given <account-id> is a valid account number at this bank.


              This  is  the Bankleitzahl (bank routing id), actually it is the
              account-id of that particular bank at the Deutsche Bundesbank.

              This is the account number you wish to verify. If  the  checksum
              method  of the bank specified by the <bank-id> is supported, you
              will get the account-id verified, i.e. if it is a valid account-
              id at that particular bank.

              If  given,  the  result  is  returned  via the returncode and no
              output on the terminal. The following returncodes are  possible:
              0:  account  and  bank  are  ok  1:  unknown,  e.g. checksum not
              implemented or such 2: account and/or bank not ok  3:  bank  not

              Specifies  the file with the bankdata. This file can be obtained
              via the internet from the Deutsche Bundesbank on address
              Beware! This page is in German only.


       No bugs are known at this time.  Only certain checksum  algorythms  are
       supported  as  of  now,  so  please  don’t  complain  if you always get
       "unknown" as return value.
