fp-luhn

Functional Implementation of the Luhn Algorithm. No variable declaration, No mutation. A simple, lightweight implementation using composition. Used for testing a credit cards checksum value. 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.

Why another LUHN library

The goal was to write a LUHN Algorithm using a functional programming paradigm. A series of composable lambas that are processed right to left. Not a single if / else statement. All branching is handled by ternary functions with implicit returns.
