Manual Reference Pages - EMAIL::SIMPLE::FROMHANDLE (3)
Email::Simple::FromHandle - an Email::Simple but from a handle
open my $fh, "<", "email.msg";
my $email = Email::Simple::FromHandle->new($fh);
This is a subclass of Email::Simple which can accept filehandles as the source
of an email. It will keep a reference to the filehandle and read from it when
it needs to access the body. It does not load the entire body into memory and
keep it there.
In addition to the standard Email::Simple interface, the following methods
This returns the handle given to construct the message. If the message was
constructed with a string instead, it returns an IO::String object.
This method returns the position in the handle at which the body begins. This
is used for seeking when re-reading the body.
This method seeks the handle to the body position and resets the header-line
For unseekable handles (pipes, sockets), this will die.
$str = $email->getline;
This method returns either the next line from the headers or the next line from
the underlying filehandle. It only returns a single line, regardless of
context. Returns undef on EOF.
$email->stream_to($fh, [ \%arg ]);
This method efficiently writes the message to the passed-in filehandle.
The second argument may be a hashref of options:
Whether or not to call $self->reset_handle before reading the message
Number of bytes to read from $self->handle at once (default 65536).
Coderef to use to print instead of print $fh $chunk. This coderef will
receive two arguments, the filehandle (which need not be a real filehandle at
all) and the current chunk of data.
