NAME

MooX::Value::ValidationUtils - Utility functions for validation of value objects

VERSION

This document describes MooX::Value::ValidationUtils version 0.04

SYNOPSIS

    use MooX::Value::ValidationUtils;

    print "Yes\n"
        if MooX::Value::ValidationUtils::is_valid_domain_name( $foo );

DESCRIPTION

Some MooX::Value-derived objects share code needed for validation. Rather than duplicating the knowledge of that information in multiple value objects, the knowledge and utilities are collected into this module.

INTERFACE

why_invalid_domain_name( $str )

Returns a three item list if the supplied $str is not a valid domain name as specified by RFCs 1123 and 2181. The first item is a short message describing the problem. The second item is empty and the third may contain a string with the part of the domain name that is invalid (depending on how it is invalid).

Returns an empty list if $str is a valid domain name.

is_valid_domain_name( $str )

Returns true if the supplied $str is a valid domain name as specified by RFCs 1123 and 2181. Otherwise, return false.

why_invalid_domain_label( $str )

Returns a three item list if the supplied $str is not a valid domain label as specified by RFCs 1123 and 2181. The first item is a short message describing the problem. The second item is empty and the third item is undef.

Returns an empty list if $str is a valid domain label.

is_valid_domain_label( $str )

Returns true if the supplied $str is a valid domain label as specified by RFCs 1123 and 2181. Otherwise, return false.

why_invalid_email_local_part( $str )

Returns a three item list if the supplied $str is not a valid email local part as specified by RFC 5322. The first item is a short message describing the problem. The second item is empty and the third item is undef.

Returns an empty list if $str is a valid email local part.

is_valid_email_local_part( $str )

Returns true if the supplied $str is a valid email address as specified by RFC 5322. Otherwise, return false.

why_invalid_common_email_local_part( $str )

Returns a three item list if the supplied $str is not a valid email local part mostly as specified by RFC 5322. The difference between the common version of the email local part and the standard is that the common version does not support the quoted form. This does seem to match the common usage of email addresses that I've seem.

The first item is a short message describing the problem. The second item is empty and the third item is undef.

Returns an empty list if $str is a valid common email local part.

is_valid_common_email_local_part( $str )

Returns true if the supplied $str is a valid email address as specified by common email address as defined by why_invalid_common_email_local_part. Otherwise, return false.
