Munge

Conceal an email address in HTML

Works with RISC OS 3.n, and < 5.2n. 4.n and 6.n unknownMunge is about as simple as a Basic program can get. It's a convenient way to turn a mailto: link into entities, making it harder for bots to harvest email addesses. Sceptical? Does this seem unlikely? Maybe but I do not see spam arriving at addesses munged in this way.

Simply drop the Basic file 'munge' from the download munge.zip (485bytes) into your !Boot.Library, open a Taskwindow and type *munge. You will be asked to enter an email address (or anything - there's no error checking) and when you hit return you will see something like this:

Enter email address to be munged : a@bcd.ef
This code can be added to your HTML. Copy text below line.

<A HREF="&#109;&#97;&#105;&#108;&#116;&#111;&#58;&#97;
&#64;&#98;&#99;&#100;&#46;&#101;&#102;">
&#97;&#64;&#98;&#99;&#100;&#46;&#101;&#102;</A>

And here you have that 'encoded' mailto link: a@bcd.ef
