rubyVALID_EMAIL_REGEX = /\A[\w+\-.][email protected][a-z\d\-.]+\.[a-z]+\z/i
puts '[email protected]'.match?(VALID_EMAIL_REGEX)
puts '@example.com'.match?(VALID_EMAIL_REGEX)

puts '[email protected]' =~ VALID_EMAIL_REGEX
puts ('@example.com' =~ VALID_EMAIL_REGEX).nil?

puts /[a-z]/.match('123456').nil?
puts /[a-z]/.match('hijklm')

puts URI::MailTo::EMAIL_REGEXP
puts '[email protected]'.match?(URI::MailTo::EMAIL_REGEXP)
puts '@example.com'.match?(URI::MailTo::EMAIL_REGEXP)

string = "HELLOWORLD".downcase
case string
when /^[a-z]*$/
  puts 'lower case'
when /^[A-Z]*$/
  puts 'upper case'
else
  puts 'mixed case'
end

string = 'hello-this-IS_a_test'
delimiters = ['-', '_']
puts string.split(Regexp.union(delimiters))
puts "#{string.split(Regexp.union(delimiters))}"

words = %w[happier unicorn newer mermaid pony]
puts words.grep(/er\z/)

puts "A bad word is frick".sub(/frick/, '*****')
