Card number

First Step is to calculate the card number based on an in initial value or a prefix or BIN. If you just press the "Generate Cards" button, an initial card number is set by default. This is "4000340000000500", which is an invalid Card Number.

To make calculate a correct card number, we call a function that takes the first 15 characters of this card number, so without the last digit. This last digit is being calculated with Luhn algorythm. That is why it is called the Luhn Digit. The algorythm makes the Luhn check of the first 15 digits and appends the calculated digit, so the correct card number is 4000340000000504

Track1 is not really used anymore, but Track2 is always used and it is printed on the magnetic stripe of the back of the card, just like recording with a casette player recorder.
