IB2017 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I need to verify that a string is an email address, at least that it is well formed. I need to perfom this offline, so not Web check needs to be done. I an trying to use Email::Valid, however if run without an Internet connecction, it gets stucked for many seconds (I did not count, probably 20 or 30). I tried to disable some check, but with no success. Any idea?

use strict; use warnings; use Email::Valid; my $address = Email::Valid->address(-address => '', + -mxcheck => 0, -tldcheck => 0, -fudge=>0); print ($address ? 'yes' : 'no');
