If you're not good at RegEx, I wouldn't suggest trying to parse email addresses with them. It's harder than it looks and you can get yourself into trouble using regular expressions like that.

Instead, try something like Email::Valid. From the docs for Email::Valid:

use Email::Valid; print (Email::Valid->address('') ? 'yes' : 'no');

    Thank you, but I`ll try learning regex because I just want to know it. Will keep in mind this module you suggested.

[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
[GotToBTru]: changing the font color of the rest of the document just because I typed a single quote character is annoying
