Mail::Abuse::Report - Process an abuse report

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Mail::Abuse::Report;

  my $r = new Mail::Abuse::Report
    (
     -text              => \$report_text,
     -reader            => $reader,
     -filters           => [ $f1, $f2, ... ],
     -parsers           => [ $i1, $i2, ... ],
     -processors        => [ $p1, $p2, ... ],
     -debug             => 1,
     -config            => $config_file,
     );

DESCRIPTION ^

This class encapsulates an abuse report and provides methods to automate tasks such as extracting individual incidents from it, filtering the incidents, etc.

Each of the methods are described in detail, below:

->new(%args)

Creates a new Mail::Abuse::Report object. It accepts the following arguments:

-text

Specifies the text that will be used to fill the report with. This is incompatible with -reader, so choose one and stick to it. Defaults to undef.

-reader

Specifies the object (tipically a member of Mail::Abuse::Reader) that will be used to fetch the text of the next report. This is incompatible with -text, so pick one and stick to it. Defaults to undef.

-filters

A reference to a list of objects that can filter incidents. Normally, objects based on Mail::Abuse::Filter. Defaults to no filters.

-parsers

A reference to a list of objects that can parse incidents out of the report text. Normally, objects based on Mail::Abuse::Incident. Defaults to no parsers.

-processors

A reference to a list of objects that can process the incidents on the report, normally objects based on the Mail::Abuse::Processor class. Defaults to no processors.

-debug

A true value causes diagnostic messages to be sent via warn().

-config

Specifies the name of the config file to fetch configuration items from. Can be left unspecified.

->next()

When the object has a reader, fetches the next report text, parses it with the incidents and filters the incidents and processes them with the supplied processors.

Returns the report object if succesful or false otherwise.

If no reader has been supplied to the report object, the same text will be analyzed over and over again.

->flush()

Discards all non-essential information from the object. It is meant to be called before reusing the object to process a new report.

This method is automatically called by ->next.

Also, a number of acccessor methods are defined as follows:

->filters

When invoked without arguments, returns a reference to the list of filters (Mail::Abuse::Filter objects) attached to this abuse report. Calling the accessor with a list of objects will replace whatever was the prior list.

The list can be manipulated, affecting the object directly.

->incidents

When invoked without arguments, returns a reference to the list of incidents extracted from this report (Mail::Abuse::Incident objects). Calling the accessor with a reference to a list of objects will replace whatever was the prior list.

The list can be manipulated, affecting the object directly.

->parsers

When invoked without arguments, returns a reference to the list of parsers that are used in this report (Mail::Abuse::Incident objects). Calling the accessor with a reference to a list of objects will replace whatever was the prior list.

The list can be manipulated, affecting the object directly.

->processors

When invoked without arguments, returns a reference to the list of processors attached to this report (Mail::Abuse::Processor objects). Calling the accessor with a reference to a list of objects will replace whatever was the prior list.

The list can be manipulated, affecting the object directly.

->text

Accepts a reference to a scalar containing the text of the report.

Returns a reference to the text of the report.

If the text is altered, you should call ->flush() to avoid insanity.

->reader

If passed a reader object, it will replace the one used for initialization. Otherwise, will return the reader object passed to ->new.

->config

Returns a reference to a hash containing the configuration information read-in by this report. It can be replaced by simply supplying a new reference to a configuration hash.

->debug

Returns the debug level of the object. When set to true, debug information is issued through warn.

EXPORT

None by default.
