Add ZIP+4 (9-digit ZIP code) from your own programs plus add area code, county name and county FIPS code, time zone, delivery point barcode, and congressional district to your programs Perfect Address Software Developer's Kit - Demo Information
With this demo you can build transparent address verification and ZIP+4 lookup into your own programs!

 

OVERVIEW
The Perfect Address Software Developer's Kit is a commercial program developed by CD Light, LLC which gives Windows programmers the tools needed to access the national mailing address database. Using these tools, programmers can build transparent address verification and ZIP+4 lookup into all types of Windows programs.

We license the mailing address database from the US Postal Service. It contains mailing address information covering more than 125 million addresses in the USA and its territories. Please note: this is a MAILING ADDRESS database; it DOES NOT contain the names or phone numbers of individuals. It does, however, contain about 750 thousand business names and addresses.

The full SDK production version contains:

  • 32-bit and 64-bit Windows DLLs for access via Visual Basic, Access, dBase, Paradox, Delphi, C/C++, Alpha Five, Microsoft Word, WordPerfect, etc.
  • Programmer documentation (Adobe Acrobat PDF format)
  • Sample programs written in various languages
  • A header file for use with C compilers
  • One address database for the entire USA and Puerto Rico
This demo version of the SDK contains:
  • 32-bit and 64-bit DLLs
  • Programmer documentation
  • Sample programs
  • A header file for use with C compilers
  • A sample address database for Orlando, Florida

REDISTRIBUTION
You may freely redistribute this demo version of the Perfect Address SDK in its entirety.


DISCLAIMER
THIS DEMONSTRATION PRODUCT IS PROVIDED "AS-IS" AND IS INTENDED FOR EVALUATION PURPOSES ONLY. CD LIGHT ASSUMES NO LIABILITY FOR THE USE OF THIS DEMONSTRATION PROGRAM. CD LIGHT RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REVISE THE PERFECT ADDRESS SDK AND OR ANY OF ITS COMPONENT PARTS AT ANY TIME WITHOUT OBLIGATION TO NOTIFY ANY PERSON OR ORGANIZATION OF SUCH REVISIONS.


DEMONSTRATION VERSION LIMITATIONS
The address database is limited to Orlando, Florida.


INSTALLATION
Download file PASDKDMO.EXE and save it to your hard drive. Then double-click on this file to start the installation process. The self-extraction program will extract and save the demo files to the folder you designate on your hard drive and run DMOSETUP.EXE to complete the installation process.

DMOSETUP.EXE copies UNZDLL32.DLL, the search engine module, to your Windows folder and creates UNZDLL.INI in your Windows folder. This file directs the search engine to the folder containing the eight demo database files, Z1.DAT through Z8.DAT.

To uninstall, simply delete the Perfect Address SDK folder and delete the files UNZDLL32.DLL and UNZDLL.INI from your Windows folder.


SAMPLE PROGRAMS
Several sample programs provide examples for calling the Perfect Address DLL from a Windows program. Sample program ADDR32.EXE is a good program to use for testing the demo version. It can find addresses in the city of Orlando, Florida. You can also use sample program ZIPDEMO.EXE to find the city-state for any active 5-digit ZIP code in the entire USA.

The sample address database included with this demo version of the SDK covers only Orlando, Florida. For testing purposes you can verify the following Orlando addresses with ADDE32.EXE:

490 E South
Orlando, FL
4800 Dacey Ct
Orlando, FL
3298 Galaxy Way
Orlando, FL
2100 Fairmont Circle
32837
1329 40th St Apt A
Orlando, FL
1707 Orlando Central Pkwy Ste 100
Orlando, FL
PO Box 2769
Orlando FL
14301 Peacock Springs Trl

ADDRESS DATABASE
We license the Perfect Address address database from the US Postal Service. Please note, however, that we have chosen NOT to qualify this product for postal discounts. The search engine and the database are NOT CASS-certified, and CANNOT be used to obtain postal bulk mail discounts. For that reason, our address database is not limited to a 60-day life, but can be used as long as you choose to use it. Address information does naturally change with time, and you will, most likely, wish to update the database to the latest information at some time in the future. But we place no usage or time restriction on access to the database.

ADDRESS RANGES
The US Postal Service address database often specifies an address range for a particular street or block face, especially in residential areas. For that reason the database usually does not list each house or apartment which may exist on a given block. In these cases the search engine verifies that a particular address falls within a valid range for the specified street and returns the correct ZIP+4, county name and FIPS code, and congressional district for that address, as well as calculating the Delivery Point Bar Code (DPBC) digits which should be used for mailing to that address.


ADDRESS VERIFICATION
The search engine accepts an address as two to four separate text strings, in this form:

CD Light
230 N Tranquil Path Dr
The Woodlands, TX 77380

Superfluous embedded spaces and punctuation characters are ignored and deleted by the search engine as part of the address standardization process.

The first line, if used, is reserved for a company name. The city-state-ZIP line (always the last line) need not be complete, and will be corrected, as necessary, to a USPS-approved city name. Either the ZIP code or the city-state can be missing. The search engine also corrects street name spelling, street prefix and suffix abbreviations, and standardizes addresses to USPS addressing standards.

After it processes an address, the search engine returns an error code describing the "correctness" of the address and any changes which were necessary. The calling program can then retrieve the corrected address, if necessary, and additional information about the address, such as ZIP+4, county name and FIPS code, congressional district, and Delivery Point Bar Code digits.

If an address cannot be verified or corrected, the search engine may return an error code indicating the existence of possible alternate address matches. The calling program can retrieve these addresses from the search engine for display to an operator who can make the final address selection.


ADDRESS MATCHING SPEED
Under varying, but real office conditions, we have measured the performance of our search engine to be from 7,500 addresses per hour to over 25,000 addresses per hour. The most critical performance factor is the computer hardware on which the SDK is running. For best results, use a high-speed CPU and hard drive. At today's hard drive prices, this is the best investment you can make. And for better speed, presort the address list into ZIP code order.
