Mail::Field::AddrList(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Mail::Field::AddrList(3)

Mail::Field::AddrList - object representation of e-mail address lists

   is a Mail::Field

  use Mail::Field::AddrList;
  $to   = Mail::Field->new('To');
  $from = Mail::Field->new('From', ' (Peter Orbaek)');
  $from->create('' => 'Mr. Foo', poe => 'Peter');
  $from->parse(' (Mr Foo), Peter Orbaek <poe>');
  # make a RFC822 header string
  print $from->stringify(),"\n";
  # extract e-mail addresses and names
  @addresses = $from->addresses(); # strings
  @names     = $from->names();     # strings
  @addr      = $from->addr_list(); # Mail::Address objects (v2.00)
  # adjoin a new address to the list
  $from->set_address('', 'Mr. Foo');

Defines parsing and formatting of address field, for the following fields: "To", "From", "Cc", "Reply-To", and "Sender".
All the normally used features of the address field specification of RFC2822 are implemented, but some complex (and therefore hardly ever used) constructs will not be understood. Use Mail::Message::Field::Full in MailBox if you need full RFC compliance.

Error: Undefined subroutine <method> called
Mail::Field objects use autoloading to compile new functionality. Apparently, the method called is not implemented for the specific class of the field object.
