NAME

Postfix::Parse::Mailq - parse the output of the postfix mailq command

VERSION

version 1.001

SYNOPSIS

    use Postfix::Parse::Mailq;

    my $mailq_output = `mailq`;
    my $entries = Postfix::Parse::Mailq->read_string($mailq_output);

    my $bytes = 0;
    for my $entry (@$entries) {
      next unless grep { /\@aol.com$/ } @{ $entry->{remaining_rcpts} };
      $bytes += $entry->{size};
    }
    
    print "$bytes bytes remain to send to AOL destinations\n";

WARNING

This code is really rough and the interface will change. Entries will be objects. There will be some more methods. Still, the basics are likely to keep working, or keep pretty close to what you see here now.

METHODS

read_file

read_handle

read_string

    my $entries = Postfix::Parse::Mailq->read_string($string, \%arg);

This methods read the output of postfix's mailq from a file (by name), a filehandle, or a string, respectively. They return an arrayref of hashrefs, each hashref representing one entry in the queue as reported by mailq.

Valid arguments are:

    spool - a hashref of { queue_id -> spool_name } pairs
            if given, this will be used to attempt to indicate in which
            spool messages currently are; it is not entirely reliable (race!)

parse_block

    my $entry = Mailq->parse_block(\@lines);

Given all the lines in a single entry's block of lines in mailq output, this returns data about the entry.
