NAME ^

VMS::Mail - VMS callable mail interface

SYNOPSIS ^

  use VMS::Mail;

Routine to initiate a new untyped object instance:

  $object = new VMS::Mail();

Routines to interact with mailfile contexts:

  $mailfile = new VMS::Mail();
  $href = $mailfile->mailfile_begin();
  $href = $mailfile->open();
  $href = $mailfile->close();
  $href = $mailfile->info_file();
  $href = $mailfile->compress();
  $href = $mailfile->purge_waste();
  $href = $mailfile->end();

Routines to interact with message contexts:

  $message = new VMS::Mail();
  $href = $message->message_begin();
  $href = $message->modify();
  $href = $message->info();
  $href = $message->get();
  $href = $message->select();
  $href = $message->delete();
  $href = $message->copy();
  $href = $message->end();

Routines to interact with send contexts:

  $send = new VMS::Mail();
  $href = $send->send_begin();
  $href = $send->abort();
  $href = $send->add_address();
  $href = $send->add_attribute();
  $href = $send->add_bodypart();
  $href = $send->message();
  $href = $send->end();

Routines to interact with user contexts:

  $user = new VMS::Mail();
  $href = $user->user_begin();
  $href = $user->delete_info();
  $href = $user->set_info();
  $href = $user->get_info();
  $href = $user->end();

One oddball routine that is here temporarily: $returned_string = VMS::Mail::smg_read($prompt [,$keydef_filename [,$default_keydef_filename]])

DESCRIPTION ^

This module supplies a complete interface to callable the VMSMail routines for client-side access.

This is the first CPAN release. This module is brand new and certainly has bugs. I will be testing it further and will release updates as I repair problems. The purpose of this release is to provide external access to it for peer review. I am very new to the module development process and would welcome any constructive criticism.

Functions

new

This function returns a new VMS::Mail object. The object is 'untyped'. Your next call should be to one of the context-type_begin methods to establish a type and a vms-level context within the object.

Object methods

mailfile_begin

mailfile_begin establishes an untyped object as a VMS MAILFILE context object. Methods for mailfile objects can now be used from the object. Output Items MAIL_DIRECTORY String, 255

message_begin

message_begin establishes an untyped object as a VMS MESSAGE context object. Methods for message objects can now be used from the object. Input items FILE_CTX Context - object returned from new, then MAILFILE_BEGIN Output Items SELECTED Integer

send_begin

send_begin establishes an untyped object as a VMS SEND context object. Methods for send objects can now be used from the object. Input items PERS_NAME String, 127 NO_PERS_NAME Presence flag SIGFILE String, 255 NO_SIGFILE Presence flag DEFAULT_TRANSPORT String, 255 NO_DEFAULT_TRANSPORT Presence flag Output Items COPY_FORWARD Integer COPY_SEND Integer COPY_REPLY Integer SEND_USER String, 255

user_begin

user_begin establishes an untyped object as a VMS USER context object. Methods for user objects can now be used from the object. Output Items AUTO_PURGE Integer CAPTIVE Integer CC_PROMPT Integer COPY_FORWARD Integer COPY_REPLY Integer COPY_SEND Integer FORWARDING String, 255 FORM String, 255 FULL_DIRECTORY String, 255 NEW_MESSAGES Integer PERSONAL_NAME String, 127 QUEUE String, 255 RETURN_USERNAME String, 255 RETURN_SIGFILE String, 255 RETURN_SUB_DIRECTORY String, 255 TRANSPORT String, 255 USER1 String, 255 USER2 String, 255 USER3 String, 255 USER3 String, 255

end

end completes a context-type_begin call and re-establishes the calling object as an untyped object.

BUGS ^

This is an initial external release. There are certainly many bugs, including, but not limited to: memory leakage, parameter mapping errors, and access violations. No such bugs are known at the time of this writing, but I am sure they are there....

EXAMPLES ^

An example to list information from your mail file

    #! perl -w
    use VMS::Mail;
    
    {
    $mailfile = new VMS::Mail();

    $ahref = $mailfile->mailfile_begin({},[MAIL_DIRECTORY]);
    if (defined($ahref)) {
      printf("  Mail directory is '%s'\n",$ahref->{MAIL_DIRECTORY});
    } else { die "Failure establishing mailfile context ($!)";

    $ahref = $mailfile->open({},[WASTEBASKET]);
    if (defined($ahref)) {
      printf("Mail file opened\n");
      printf("  Wastebasket folder is '%s'\n",$ahref->{WASTEBASKET});
    } else { die "Failure opening mail file ($!)";

    $rs = sub {
      my ($lstRef,$fldrname) = @_;
      defined($fldrname) && push @$lstRef,$fldrname;
      return(1); };
    $ahref = $mailfile->info_file({ FOLDER_ROUTINE => $rs,
                                    USER_DATA => $rfFlist=[]},
                   [WASTEBASKET,RESULTSPEC,
                    DELETED_BYTES]);
    if (defined($ahref)) {
      printf("  Folder list is (%s)",join(",",@$rfFlist));
      printf("  Wastebasket is '%s'\n",$ahref->{WASTEBASKET});
      printf("  Mail file is '%s'\n",$ahref->{RESULTSPEC});
      printf("  Mail file contains %d deleted bytes\n",$ahref->{DELETED_BYTES});
    } else { die "trying to get mailfile info ($!)";

    $ahref = $mailfile->close({FULL_CLOSE},
                              [TOTAL_RECLAIM,DATA_RECLAIM,DATA_SCAN,
                               INDEX_RECLAIM,MESSAGES_DELETED]);
    if (defined($ahref)) {
      printf("Closed mail file\n");
      printf("  Total reclaim was '%d'\n",$ahref->{TOTAL_RECLAIM});
      printf("  index reclaim was '%d'\n",$ahref->{INDEX_RECLAIM});
      printf("  data reclaim  was '%d'\n",$ahref->{DATA_RECLAIM});
      printf("  data scan     was '%d'\n",$ahref->{DATA_SCAN});
      printf("  messages deleted  '%d'\n",$ahref->{MESSAGES_DELETED});
    }
    $ahref = $mailfile->end({},[]);
