Mail::SPF::Base is a common base class for all Mail::SPF classes.


The following constructor is provided:

new(%options): returns Mail::SPF::Base

Creates a new object of the class on which the constructor was invoked. The provided options are stored as key/value pairs in the new object.

The new constructor may also be called on an object, in which case the object is cloned. Any options provided override those from the old object.

There are no common options defined in Mail::SPF::Base.
