in reply to Practical e-mail address validation
Now on to your problem at hand. Are the following email addresses "equivalent"?
It turns out that 1 and 3 are but 2 is not. You have already mentioned this. I only bring it up again to point out another "rule" for this theoretical CPAN module - to consider case in the user portion of the address. Here is another one that may be difficult to tell:1. firstname.lastname@example.org 2. Foo@bar.com 3. foo@BAR.com
These are functionally equivalent because it expects the MTA at asdf.com to relay the mail to bar.com.1. email@example.com 2. firstname.lastname@example.org # corrected
So I have no practical use for your validation routines but would love to see a more flexible module - for reasons I mention here as well as ones mentioned here, here and there.
Cheers - L~R
