Text::Quoted - Extract the structure of a quoted mail message

        use Text::Quoted;
        my $structure = extract($text);

        # Optionally, customize recognized quote characters:
        Text::Quoted::set_quote_characters( qr/[:]/ );

    "Text::Quoted" examines the structure of some text which may contain
    multiple different levels of quoting, and turns the text into a nested
    data structure.

    The structure is an array reference containing hash references for each
    paragraph belonging to the same author. Each level of quoting
    recursively adds another list reference. So for instance, this:

        > foo
        > # Bar
        > baz


    turns into:

            { text => 'foo', quoter => '>', raw => '> foo' },
                { text => 'Bar', quoter => '> #', raw => '> # Bar' }
            { text => 'baz', quoter => '>', raw => '> baz' }

          { empty => 1 },
          { text => 'quux', quoter => '', raw => 'quux' }

    This also tells you about what's in the hash references: "raw" is the
    paragraph of text as it appeared in the original input; "text" is what
    it looked like when we stripped off the quotation characters, and
    "quoter" is the quotation string.

      my $struct = extract($text, \%arg);

    Takes a single string argument which is the text to extract quote
    structure from. Returns a nested datastructure as described above.

    Second argument is optional: a hashref of options. The only valid
    argument at present is:

      no_separators - never mark paragraphs as "separators"

    Exported by default.

    Takes a regex ("qr//") matching characters that should indicate a quoted
    line. By default, a very liberal set is used:


    The character ">" is always recognized as a quoting character.

    If "undef" is provided instead of a regex, only ">" will remain as a
    quote character.

    Not exported by default, but exportable.

      my $text = combine_hunks( $arrayref_of_hunks );

    Takes the output of "extract" and turns it back into text.

    Not exported by default, but exportable.

    Most of the heavy lifting is done by a modified version of Damian
    Conway's "Text::Autoformat".
