    >> f: make email! "foo"
    == foo
    
    >> type? f
    == email!
  • To

    >> b: to email! 'bar
    == bar
    
    >> type? b
    == email!

5. Path accessors

6. Comparisons

All comparators can be applied on email!: =, ==, <>, >, <, >=, <=, =?. In addition, min, and max are also supported.

7. Testing values
