The email-validator package

[Tags:gpl, program, test]

Validate an email address using three techniques:

These checks are performed in parallel using the number of available threads. To increase the number of threads, you can pass the appropriate flag to the GHC runtime.

This will set the number of threads to 25:

$ email-validator -i addresses.csv +RTS -N25


The input file (default: stdin) should be a list of email addresses, one per line. Empty lines will be ignored.


Valid email addresses will be written to the output file (default: stdout), one per line.
