Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::Perl - A Perl-based mbox folder reader

  #!/usr/bin/perl
  use Mail::Mbox::MessageParser;
  my $filename = 'mail/saved-mail';
  my $filehandle = new FileHandle($filename);
  my $folder_reader =
    new Mail::Mbox::MessageParser( {
      'file_name' => $filename,
      'file_handle' => $filehandle,
    } );
  die $folder_reader unless ref $folder_reader;
  # Any newlines or such before the start of the first email
  my $prologue = $folder_reader->prologue;
  print $prologue;
  # This is the main loop. It's executed once for each email
  while(!$folder_reader->end_of_file());
  {
    my $email = $folder_reader->read_next_email();
    print $$email;
  }

This module implements a Perl-based mbox folder reader. Users must not instantiate this class directly--use Mail::Mbox::MessageParser instead. The base MessageParser module will automatically manage the use of faster implementations if they can be used.

The following methods and functions are specific to the Mail::Mbox::MessageParser::Perl package. For additional inherited ones, see the Mail::Mbox::MessageParser documentation.
$ref = new( { 'file_name' => <mailbox file name>, 'file_handle' => <mailbox file handle> });
    <file_name> - The full filename of the mailbox
    <file_handle> - An opened file handle for the mailbox
    
The constructor for the class takes two parameters. The optional file_name parameter is the filename of the mailbox. The required file_handle argument is the opened file handle to the mailbox.
Returns a reference to a Mail::Mbox::MessageParser object, or a string describing the error.
end_of_file()
reset()
read_next_email()
These methods are overridden in this subclass of Mail::Mbox::MessageParser.

No known bugs.
