Crypt::OpenPGP::Message provides a container for a sequence of PGP
packets. It transparently handles ASCII-armoured messages, as well as
Constructs a new Crypt::OpenPGP::Message object, presumably to be
filled with some data, where the data is a serialized stream of PGP
Reads the packets into in-memory packet objects.
Returns the new Message object on success, undef on failure.
%arg can contain:
A scalar string containing the serialized packets.
This argument is optional, but either this argument or Filename must
The path to a file that contains a serialized stream of packets.

By default Crypt::OpenPGP::Message will attempt to unarmour ASCII-armoured
text. Since the armoured text can actually appear anywhere in a string, as
long as it starts at the beginning of a line, this can cause problems when a
stream of packets happens to include armoured text. At those times you want
the packets to be treated as a stream, not as a string that happens to contain
In this case, set IsPacketStream to a true value, and the ASCII armour
detection will be skipped.
Returns an array containing packet objects. For example, if the packet
stream contains a public key packet, a user ID packet, and a signature
packet, the array will contain three objects: a
Crypt::OpenPGP::Certificate object; a Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID
object; and a Crypt::OpenPGP::Signature object, in that order.
