NAME

Mail::MBX::Message - An MBX mailbox message object

SYNOPSIS

    use Mail::MBX ();

    my $mbx = Mail::MBX->open('mailbox.mbx');

    #
    # Fetch and read first message in mailbox
    #
    my $message = $mbx->message;

    #
    # Write message body to standard output
    #
    while (my $readlen = $message->read(my $buf, 4096)) {
        print $buf;
    }

    $mbx->close;

DESCRIPTION

Mail::MBX::Message represents an MBX message object within an existing Mail::MBX file object. Because Mail::MBX::Message objects contain state specific to the parent object's file handle, only one message can be read per mailbox at a time.

USAGE

Mail::MBX::Message->parse($fh)

Not intended to be used as part of a public interface. Given the file handle specified in $fh, this method will return a new Mail::MBX::Message object representing the message found at the current position of $fh.

$message->reset()

Reset internal file handle position to beginning of message.

$message->read($buf, $len)

Read at most $len bytes from the current message, into a scalar variable in the argument of $buf, and return the number of bytes actually read from the current message.
