Hey, that's a nice trick and I like it. Just one thing I'm wondering about: your &unpackEmail sub does HTML encoding of the characters. Why not have the line

my @codes = unpackEmail( $input );

Changed to:

use HTML::Entities; my @codes = map{ encode_entities( $_, '\x00-\xff' ) } split//, $in +put;

If I understood your code correctly, you could then drop your unpackEmail sub.


Update: I forgot to mention, if you want to get rid of all HTML, you can change this:

my $link = '<a href="mailto:' . "$mailto" . '">' . "$mailto</a>"; # to this: my $link = a( { -href => $mailto }, $mailto );

I can't wait to email the link to your code to a bunch of my friends (yes, even Ovid has friends). It's a really, really nice trick.
