NAME

Crypt::OpenPGP::Plaintext - A plaintext, literal-data packet

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Crypt::OpenPGP::Plaintext;

    my $data = foo bar;
    my $file = foo.txt;

    my $pt = Crypt::OpenPGP::Plaintext->new(
                             Data     => $data,
                             Filename => $file,
                    );
    my $serialized = $pt->save;



DESCRIPTION

Crypt::OpenPGP::Plaintext implements plaintext literal-data packets, and is essentially just a container for a string of octets, along with some meta-data about the plaintext.

USAGE

Crypt::OpenPGP::Plaintext->new( CW%arg )

Creates a new plaintext data packet object and returns that object. If there are no arguments in %arg, the object is created with an empty data container; this is used, for example, in parse (below), to create an empty packet which is then filled from the data in the buffer.

If you wish to initialize a non-empty object, %arg can contain:
o Data

A block of octets that make up the plaintext data.

This argument is required (for a non-empty object).

o Filename

The name of the file that this data came from, or the name of a file where it should be saved upon extraction from the packet (after decryption, for example, if this packet is going to be encrypted).

o Mode

The mode in which the data is formatted. Valid values are t and b, meaning text and binary, respectively.

This argument is optional; Mode defaults to b.

CW$pt->save

Returns the serialized form of the plaintext object, which is the plaintext data, preceded by some meta-data describing the data.

    Crypt::OpenPGP::Plaintext->parse($buffer)

Given $buffer, a Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer object holding (or with offset pointing to) a plaintext data packet, returns a new Crypt::OpenPGP::Ciphertext object, initialized with the data in the buffer.

CW$pt->data

Returns the plaintext data.

CW$pt->mode

Returns the mode of the packet (either t or b).
