NAME

Net::DNS::Mailbox - DNS mailbox representation

SYNOPSIS

    use Net::DNS::Mailbox;

    $mailbox = new Net::DNS::Mailbox('user@example.com');
    $address = $mailbox->address;

DESCRIPTION

The Net::DNS::Mailbox module implements a subclass of DNS domain name objects representing the DNS coded form of RFC822 mailbox address.

METHODS

new

    $mailbox = new Net::DNS::Mailbox('John Doe <john.doe@example.com>');
    $mailbox = new Net::DNS::Mailbox('john.doe@example.com');
    $mailbox = new Net::DNS::Mailbox('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

    $address = $mailbox->address;

Returns a character string containing the RFC822 mailbox address corresponding to the encoded domain name representation described in RFC1035 section 8.

DOMAIN NAME COMPRESSION AND CANONICALISATION

The Net::DNS::Mailbox1035 and Net::DNS::Mailbox2535 subclass packages implement RFC1035 domain name compression and RFC2535 canonicalisation.
