# Validates whether the value of the specified attribute is of the correct form by matching it against the regular expression
# provided.

# class Person < ActiveRecord::Base
# validates_format_of :email, :with => /\A([^@\s]+)@((?:[-a-z0-9]+\.)+[a-z]{2,})\Z/i, :on => :create
# end
#
# Note: use <tt>\A</tt> and <tt>\Z</tt> to match the start and end of the string, <tt>^</tt> and <tt>$</tt> match the start/end of a line.
#
# A regular expression must be provided or else an exception will be raised.
#
# Configuration options:
# * <tt>:message</tt> - A custom error message (default is: "is invalid")
# * <tt>:allow_nil</tt> - If set to +true+, skips this validation if the attribute is +nil+ (default is: +false+)
# * <tt>:allow_blank</tt> - If set to +true+, skips this validation if the attribute is blank (default is: +false+)
# * <tt>:with</tt> - The regular expression used to validate the format with (note: must be supplied!)
# * <tt>:on</tt> - Specifies when this validation is active (default is <tt>:save</tt>, other options <tt>:create</tt>, <tt>:update</tt>)
# * <tt>:if</tt> - Specifies a method, proc or string to call to determine if the validation should
# occur (e.g. <tt>:if => :allow_validation</tt>, or <tt>:if => Proc.new { |user| user.signup_step > 2 }</tt>). The
# method, proc or string should return or evaluate to a true or false value.
# * <tt>:unless</tt> - Specifies a method, proc or string to call to determine if the validation should
# not occur (e.g. <tt>:unless => :skip_validation</tt>, or <tt>:unless => Proc.new { |user| user.signup_step <= 2 }</tt>). The
# method, proc or string should return or evaluate to a true or false value.
