Net::DNS::Mailbox - DNS mailbox representation
use Net::DNS::Mailbox; $mailbox = Net::DNS::Mailbox->new('firstname.lastname@example.org'); $address = $mailbox->address;
The Net::DNS::Mailbox module implements a subclass of DNS domain name objects representing the DNS coded form of RFC822 mailbox address.
The Net::DNS::Mailbox1035 and Net::DNS::Mailbox2535 packages implement mailbox representation subtypes which provide the name compression and canonicalisation specified by RFC1035 and RFC2535. These are necessary to meet the backward compatibility requirements introduced by RFC3597.
$mailbox = Net::DNS::Mailbox->new('John Doe <email@example.com>'); $mailbox = Net::DNS::Mailbox->new('firstname.lastname@example.org'); $mailbox = Net::DNS::Mailbox->new('john\.doe.example.com');
Creates a mailbox object representing the RFC822 mail address specified by the character string argument. An encoded domain name is also accepted for backward compatibility with Net::DNS 0.68 and earlier.
The argument string consists of printable characters from the 7-bit ASCII repertoire.
$address = $mailbox->address;
Returns a character string containing the RFC822 mailbox address corresponding to the encoded domain name representation described in RFC1035 section 8.
