Email::MIME::RFC2047::Decoder - Decoding of non-ASCII MIME headers
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);
This module decodes parts of MIME email message headers containing non-ASCII text according to RFC 2047.
my $decoder = Email::MIME::RFC2047::Decoder->new();
Creates a new decoder object.
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.
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.
