in thread RegEx for email help

I concur with all of the comments made hardburn above - Matching email addresses is a much more complex task than what most people realise. Generally however I lean towards the use of Email::Valid::Loose in place of Email::Valid as this allows for better matching as per RFC2822, which supercedes RFC 822, and permits the . (period) character in the local-part portion of the email address.

Additionally, depending upon your matching requirements, it may be worth modifying URI::Find to employ the regular expression from Email::Valid::Loose above ($Email::Valid::Loose::Addr_spec_re) to be employed for matching ($URI::scheme_re).


perl -le "print unpack'N', pack'B32', '00000000000000000000001010101011'"

[1nickt]: I do think it is sad that roho has received 3 downvotes for his polite request, as did I when I objected to the profanity in stonecolddevin's sig. I upvoted both him and Karl for the discussion. Way too much downvoting for inappropriate reasons here!
Discipulus learn that 'argue' has a little negative sense, he thought was a neutral sense, 'vox media'
[1nickt]: argue == discuss && argue == be contentious
[Discipulus]: you are right 1nickt i didnt voted nor downvoted; I just upvote perl content i like
[1nickt]: In Spanish, to argue (like a fight) is discutir -- does not mean to discuss !
[1nickt]: Sigh, this is why I gave up human-only languages and became a Perl linguist :-)
[Discipulus]: i just, rarely, downvote unpolite posts and spam, and wrong advices
[Discipulus]: discutere in eatalian is neutral: but discutere with wife sounds implicitly negative..
[erix]: what's the offending signature?
