PHP: Email Validation

Hello friends,

Just before few days, while working with a form, we required to validate email address.

To satisfy our requirement, we have searched the web and find a “filter_var()” function.

And to validate email address using “filter_var()” function, we have passed two arguments in it.

Where first argument is an email address and second is a type of filter.

For Example:

filter_var('abc@def.ghi', FILTER_VALIDATE_EMAIL);

The above code returns email address on success and returns false if the given email address is not proper.

Hope this will help you.
