Introduction

This is a simple gem for Ruby that simplifies validating email addresses. It conforms with RFC2822.

Here comes a quick code sample. Currently no docs.

require 'rfc822'

# To test if whole string is an email... ugly way 
#  (returns 0 on success, nil on failure):

"tom@example.com" =~ RFC822::EMAIL_REGEXP_WHOLE

# or nice one (returns true/false):

"tom@example.com".is_email?

# To test if string contains an email... ugly way 
#   (returns 0 on success, nil on failure):

"demo john@example.comFooBar" =~ RFC822::EMAIL_REGEXP_PART

# or nice one (returns true/false):

"demo john@example.comFooBar".contains_email?

# To scan for emails within a string... ugly way 
#   (returns an array):

"something a@example.com xyz".scan(RFC822::EMAIL_REGEXP_PART)

# or nice one (also returns an array):

"something a@example.com xyz".scan_for_emails
