Name a valid email – The Daily WTF

It is surprisingly difficult to validate an email address according to the specification. This is in part because the email address has a lot of features that no one uses. You can still get easily Close enoughThe majority of people use basic regex.

Niels HThe predecessor of wanted to go even further. They wanted to verify that the domain name provided had a valid DNS. Overkill? Probably. But, fortunately for these users, the.NET Framework provides a handy System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntryThis method resolves a domain. This makes the problem easier to solve.

It makes the problem easier to solve You can use it. Why use a built-in method when you could do it yourself?

Private Investigators bool IsValidDomain(String EmailAddress)
{
  List<The byte> ByteList = New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. List<The byte>();
  StringGetDnsAddress();
  If you want to know more about if (DNS == "") {
    Throwaway New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. Exception(No DNS was found.);
  }
  If you want to know more about if (EmailAddress.Contains("@")) {
    Try to understand how to do it. {
      varHostName=EmailAddress.Split'@')[1];
      ByteList.AddRange(New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. The byte[] { 88, 89, 1, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0 });
      UDPC = New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. UdpClient(DNS, 53);
      Foreach (String S You can also find out more about the following: HostName.Split('.')) {
        ByteList.Add(Convert.ToByte(S.Length));
        Char[]chars = S.ToCharArray();
        Foreach (Charc You can also find out more about the following: chars)
          ByteList.Add(Convert.ToByte(Convert.ToInt32(c)));
      }

      ByteList.AddRange(New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. The byte[] { 0, 0, Convert.ToByte("15"), 0, 1 });
      The byte[] Req = New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. The byte[ByteList.Count];
      The following are some examples of how to use (Int i = 0; i < ByteList.Count; i++)
Req[i]ByteList[i];
      UDPC.Send(Req, Req.Length);
      IPEndPoint ep = Null;
      The byte[]Recv = UDPC.ReceiveYou can also check out our other articles. ep);
      UDPC.Close();
      varResp = New Zealanders are able to purchase new cars. Int[recv.Length];
      The following are some examples of how to use (Int i = 0; i < Resp.Length; i++)
        Resp[i] = Convert.ToInt32(recv[i]);
      IntStatus = Resp[3];
      If you want to know more about if (status != 128) {
        Return to the Homepage The same applies to the use of false;
      }
      IntAnswers = Resp[7];
      If you want to know more about if (answers == 0) {
        Return to the Homepage The same applies to the use of false;
      }
    } Catch {
      Return to the Homepage The same applies to the use of false;

  Return to the Homepage It is a good idea to use a different language.;
}

Right away, IsValidDomainThis function is badly named and poorly designed. It takes an email address string and returns true or falsif If you receive an emailAddress contains a valid Domain. I would argue that a simpler design would be to input the domain part and let other functions worry about splitting up an email address.

You’re missing the forest, aren’t you? This function is a one-stop shop. It begins by manually laying the byte structure for a DNS request. Then, iterate across a text to convert each character in a byte. We’re going to do this in a ListWe need to convert the structure into an array, but we cannot use it. ToArrayWe manually copy each byte in the array.

Then, we send and get a UDP request for our DNS. We do create a variable that will hold an IPEndPointThe return value of GetHostEntryThe word hints at something. Then, you can ask yourself:Someone has thought about using this function.

After we get our bytes back, we copy each byte in an array of integers 32 bits, upscaling it to 32 bits. Why? I don’t know. We still treat arrays as bytes, moving on to specific offsets for detecting whether our request has succeeded.

I don’t get too caught up in the idea that you can only return from one place within a function. I’m not a fan of the “return from only one place in a function” rule. In many cases, multiple returns can be easier to read. This particular one is a bit confusing to me, as we are not only returning from multiple locations but also from multiple levels of blocks.

Today, I’ve learned some things about the DNS packet structure.
