SYNOPSIS

    use Sendmail::Queue::Df

    $df->set_queue_id( $some_qf->get_queue_id );

    # Give it some data directly
    $df->set_data( $scalar_with_body );

    # ... or, give some data from a filehandle
    $df->set_data_from( $some_fh );

    $df->hardlink_to( $other_df );

    $df->write( '/path/to/queue');

DESCRIPTION

Sendmail::Queue::Df provides a representation of a Sendmail df (data) file.

METHODS

new ( \%args )

Create a new Sendmail::Queue::Df object.

Instead of writing a new data file, hardlink this one to an existing file.

$target can be either a Sendmail::Queue::Df object, or a scalar pathname.

get_data_filename

Return the full path name of this data file.

Will return undef if no queue ID exists, and die if queue directory is unset.

set_data_from ( $data_fh )

Given a filehandle, read the data from it, up to the end of file, and store it in the object.

write ( )

Write data to df file, if necessary.

Unlink the queue file. Returns true (1) on success, false (undef) on failure.

Unlinking the queue file will only succeed if we have a queue directory and queue ID configured for this object. Otherwise, we fail to delete.
