This class can validate string values in different formats and convert strings between some of those formats.

It provides different functions to validate strings for formats like:

- German names
- Base 64 encoded data
- Integer numbers
- Email addresses
- URLs
- MD5 or SHA1 hashes
- UUID identifiers
- OID identifiers
- CSS position or length values
- CSS colors
- etc..

The class can also convert IPv4 and IPv6 addresses to long integer numbers and vice-versa, convert strings to CamelCase or insert whitespace and delimiters into a CamelCasedString.

The validation rules can be altered and extended dynamically by mapping regular expressions or closure functions to user-defined formats.

The class can validate a string against a given format, an array of given formats or all formats the class instance supports.

It can be used in static context as well as in object context.
