       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 out-
	      put on the terminal. The following returncodes are possible:  0:
	      account  and  bank  are  ok 1: unknown, e.g. checksum not	imple-
	      mented or	such 2:	account	and/or bank not	ok 3: bank not found

	      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  "un-
       known" as return	value.

       This  manual  page  was written by Jens Gecius <> for the
       Debian GNU/Linux	system.	 Authors  of  ktoblzcheck  are	Fabian	Kaiser
       <> and	Christian Stimming <>.
