Calculate an ISBN checksum?
Posted on 1998-12-16
I am trying to automate a few things here at the office for everyone. One of my projects is to create a simple program (very simple) that calculates the checksum or check digit of an ISBN number.
If you had an ISBN number of 157521030, the checksum would be 4. I've seen examples to verify the checksum, and I've seen the mathmatical equation, but I was wondering if anyone had a simple function or routine that does this? Perhaps a pointer to one that does?
Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
