    4.19: How do I validate input?

    (contributed by brian d foy)

    There are many ways to ensure that values are what you expect or want to
    accept. Besides the specific examples that we cover in the perlfaq, you
    can also look at the modules with "Assert" and "Validate" in their
    names, along with other modules such as "Regexp::Common".

    Some modules have validation for particular types of input, such as
    "Business::ISBN", "Business::CreditCard", "Email::Valid", and
    "Data::Validate::IP".



    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
    are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
    so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
    corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
    operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
    corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
    Working code is greatly appreciated.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
    perlfaq.pod.
