NAME

Palm::Mail - Handler for Palm Mail databases.

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Palm::Mail;



DESCRIPTION

The Mail PDB handler is a helper class for the Palm::PDB package. It parses Mail databases.

    AppInfo block

The AppInfo block begins with standard category support. See Palm::StdAppInfo for details.

Other fields include:



    $pdb->{appinfo}{sortOrder}
    $pdb->{appinfo}{unsent}
    $pdb->{appinfo}{sigOffset}



I don’t know what these are.

    Sort block



    $pdb->{sort}



This is a scalar, the raw data of the sort block.

    Records



    $record = $pdb->{records}[N]

    $record->{year}
    $record->{month}
    $record->{day}
    $record->{hour}
    $record->{minute}



The message’s timestamp.



    $record->{is_read}



This is defined and true iff the message has been read.



    $record->{has_signature}



For outgoing messages, this is defined and true iff the message should have a signature attached. The signature itself is stored in the Saved Preferences.prc database, and is of type mail with ID 2.



    $record->{confirm_read}



If this is defined and true, then the sender requests notification when the message has been read.



    $record->{confirm_delivery}



If this is defined and true, then the sender requests notification when the message has been delivered.



    $record->{priority}



An integer in the range 0-2, for high, normal, or low priority, respectively.



    $record->{addressing}



An integer in the range 0-2, indicating the addressing type: To, Cc, or Bcc respectively. I don’t know what this means.



    $record->{subject}
    $record->{from}
    $record->{to}
    $record->{cc}
    $record->{bcc}
    $record->{replyTo}
    $record->{sentTo}



Strings, the various header fields.



    $record->{body}



A string, the body of the message.

METHODS

    new



  $pdb = new Palm::Mail;



Create a new PDB, initialized with the various Palm::Mail fields and an empty record list.

Use this method if you’re creating a Mail PDB from scratch.

    new_Record



  $record = $pdb->new_Record;



Creates a new Mail record, with blank values for all of the fields.

new_Record does <B>notB> add the new record to $pdb. For that, you want $pdb->append_Record.

Note: the time given by the year, month, day, hour, and minute fields in the new record are initialized to the time when the record was created. They should be reset to the time when the message was sent.
