Calculate Latitude And Longitude From Rate Center V&H In Perl

·
ZIPCodeWorld.com provides this function to calculate the latitude and longitude coordinates from Vertical and Horizontal (V&H) coordinates in Perl. V&H's are used to identify locations and hence relative distances between network elements and between rate centers listed in AreaCodeWorld(TM) North American Area Code Database Subscription which includes NPA (area code), NXX (exchange), country, state, county, latitude, longitude, etc.
