Iranian National ID Algorithm

In Iran each person has a national code which is called “Code Melli” or “کد ملی”. And, its algorithm is very similar to ISBN algorithm:
The rules are:
1- This number has 10 digits like: C[1] C[2] C[3] C[4] C[5] C[6] C[7] C[8] C[9] C[10]
2- 3 digits of left must not be equal to 000 (c[1]c[2]c[3]000)
3- C[10] is a control digit (like ISBN algorithm)
The formula to determine C[10] is:
Let A = (C[1]*10)+ (C[2]*9)+ (C[3]*8)+ (C[4]*7)+ (C[5]*6)+ (C[6]*5)+ (C[7]*4)+ (C[8]*3)+ (C[9]*2)
Let B = A MOD 11
If B == 0 Then C[10]=B Else C[10] = 11-B
This JavaScript function is useful to validation:
