Mail::Box::Tie(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Mail::Box::Tie(3)
 

Mail::Box::Tie - access an existing message-folder as an array or hash

As an array:
 use Mail::Box::Tie;
 tie my(@inbox), Mail::Box::Tie::ARRAY => $folder;
 tie my(@inbox), Mail::Box::Tie => $folder;    # deprecated
 print $inbox[3];
or as hash:
 tie my(%inbox), Mail::Box::Tie::HASH => $folder;
 tie my(%inbox), Mail::Box::Tie => $folder;    # deprecated
 print $inbox{'<12379.124879@example.com>'};

The use of "Mail::Box::Tie" is deprecated, because it is succeeded by two separate modules: Mail::Box::Tie::ARRAY and Mail::Box::Tie::HASH. However, this module still works.
Folders certainly look like an array of messages, so why not just access them as one? Or, the order is not important, but the message-ids are (give relations): why not access them from a hash based on this message-id? Programs using one of these ties will look simpler than programs using the more traditional method calls.

This module is part of Mail-Box distribution version 3.005, built on March 04, 2018. Website: http://perl.overmeer.net/CPAN/
