If you look at Email::Find
you'll find 2 modules that do the job, eg
my $finder = Email::Find->new(
my($email, $orig_email) = @_;
my($address) = $email->format;
return qq|<a href="mailto:$address">$orig_email</a>|;
my($uri, $orig_uri) = @_;
return qq|<a href="$uri">$orig_uri</a>|;
Examples pulled from the docs. You might also find HTML::FromText
handy for formatting text (and converting URLs etc).
Hope this helps.
