NAME
       Mail::RFC822::Address - Perl extension for validating email addresses
       according to RFC822

SYNOPSIS
	 use Mail::RFC822::Address qw(valid validlist);

	 if (valid("pdw@ex-parrot.com")) {
	     print "That's a valid address\n";
	 }

	 if (validlist("pdw@ex-parrot.com, other@elsewhere.com")) {
	     print "That's a valid list	of addresses\n";
	 }

DESCRIPTION
       Mail::RFC822::Address validates email addresses against the grammar
       described in RFC	822 using regular expressions.	How to validate	a user
       supplied	email address is a FAQ (see perlfaq9): the only	sure way to
       see if a	supplied email address is genuine is to	send an	email to it
       and see if the user recieves it.	 The one useful	check that can be
       performed on an address is to check that	the email address is
       syntactically valid.  That is what this module does.

       This module is functionally equivalent to RFC::RFC822::Address, but
       uses regular expressions	rather than the	Parse::RecDescent parser.
       This means that startup time is greatly reduced making it suitable for
       use in transient	scripts	such as	CGI scripts.

   valid ( address )
       Returns true or false to	indicate if address is an RFC822 valid
       address.

   validlist ( addresslist )
       In scalar context, returns true if the parameter	is an RFC822 valid
       list of addresses.

       In list context,	returns	an empty list on failure (an invalid address
       was found); otherwise a list whose first	element	is the number of
       addresses found and whose remaining elements are	the addresses.	This
       is needed to disambiguate failure (invalid) from	success	with no
       addresses found,	because	an empty string	is a valid list.
