NAME

       Regexp::Common::URI::fax -- Returns a pattern for fax URIs.

SYNOPSIS

           use Regexp::Common qw /URI/;

           while (<>) {
               /$RE{URI}{fax}/       and  print "Contains a fax URI.\n";
           }

DESCRIPTION

   $RE{URI}{fax}
       Returns a pattern that matches fax URIs, as defined by RFC 2806.  Under "{-keep}", the
       following are returned:

       $1  The complete URI.

       $2  The scheme.

       $3  The phone number, including any possible add-ons like ISDN subaddress, a post dial
           part, area specifier, service provider, etc.

   $RE{URI}{fax}{nofuture}
       As above (including what's returned by "{-keep}"), with the exception that future
       extensions are not allowed. Without allowing those future extensions, it becomes much
       easier to check a URI if the correct syntax for post dial, service provider, phone
       context, etc has been used - otherwise the regex could always classify them as a future
       extension.
