NAME

Email::MIME::RFC2047::Decoder - Decoding of non-ASCII MIME headers

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.93

SYNOPSIS



 use Email::MIME::RFC2047::Decoder;

 my $decoder = Email::MIME::RFC2047::Decoder->new();

 my $string = $decoder->decode_text($encoded_text);
 my $string = $decoder->decode_phrase($encoded_phrase);



DESCRIPTION

This module decodes parts of MIME email message headers containing non-ASCII text according to RFC 2047.

CONSTRUCTOR

    new



 my $decoder = Email::MIME::RFC2047::Decoder->new();



Creates a new decoder object.

METHODS

    decode_text



 my $string = $decoder->decode_text($encoded_text);



Decodes any MIME header field for which the field body is defined as ’*text’ (as defined by RFC 822), for example, any Subject or Comments header field.

$encoded_text can also be a reference to a scalar. In this case the scalar is processed starting from the current search position. See pos in perlfunc.

The resulting string is trimmed and any whitespace is collapsed.

    decode_phrase



 my $string = $decoder->decode_phrase($encoded_phrase);



Decodes any ’phrase’ token (as defined by RFC 822) in a MIME header field, for example, one that precedes an address in a From, To, or Cc header.

This method works like decode_text but additionally unquotes any ’quoted-strings’. It also stops at any special character as defined by RFC 822. If $encoded_phrase is a reference to a scalar the current search position is set accordingly. This is helpful when parsing RFC 822 address headers.
