pop3d::dbox(n)						      Tcl POP3 Server Package						    pop3d::dbox(n)

pop3d::dbox - Simple mailbox database for pop3d SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.2 package require pop3d::dbox ?1.0? ::pop3d::dbox::new ?dbName? dbName option ?arg arg ...? dbName destroy dbName base base dbName add mbox dbName remove mbox dbName move old new dbName list dbName exists mbox dbName locked mbox dbName lock mbox dbName unlock mbox dbName stat mbox dbName size mbox msgId dbName dele mbox msgList storageCmd get mbox msgId DESCRIPTION
The package pop3d::dbox provides simple/basic mailbox management facilities. Each mailbox object manages a single base directory whose sub- directories represent the managed mailboxes. Mails in a mailbox are represented by files in a mailbox directory, where each of these files contains a single mail, both headers and body, in RFC822 conformant format. Any mailbox object following the interface described below can be used in conjunction with the pop3 server core provided by the package pop3d. It is especially possible to directly use the objects created by this package in the storage callback of pop3 servers following the same interface as servers created by the package pop3d. ::pop3d::dbox::new ?dbName? This command creates a new database object with an associated global Tcl command whose name is dbName. The command dbName may be used to invoke various operations on the database. It has the following general form: dbName option ?arg arg ...? Option and the args determine the exact behavior of the command. The following commands are possible for database objects: dbName destroy Destroys the mailbox database and all transient data. The directory associated with the object is not destroyed. dbName base base Defines the base directory containing the mailboxes to manage. If this method is not called none of the following methods will work. dbName add mbox Adds a mailbox of name mbox to the database. The name must be a valid path component. dbName remove mbox Removes the mailbox specified through mbox, and the mails contained therein, from the database. This method will fail if the speci- fied mailbox is locked. dbName move old new Changes the name of the mailbox old to new. dbName list Returns a list containing the names of all mailboxes in the directory associated with the database. dbName exists mbox Returns true if the mailbox with name mbox exists in the database, or false if not. dbName locked mbox Checks if the mailbox specified through mbox is currently locked. dbName lock mbox This method locks the specified mailbox for use by a single connection to the server. This is necessary to prevent havoc if several connections to the same mailbox are open. The complementary method is unlock. The command will return true if the lock could be set successfully or false if not. dbName unlock mbox This is the complementary method to lock, it revokes the lock on the specified mailbox. dbName stat mbox Determines the number of messages in the specified mailbox and returns this number. This method fails if the mailbox mbox is not locked. dbName size mbox msgId Determines the size of the message specified through its id in msgId, in bytes, and returns this number. The msgId has to be in the range "1 ... [dbName stat]" or this call will fail. If stat was not called before this call, size will assume that there are zero messages in the mailbox. dbName dele mbox msgList Deletes the messages whose numeric ids are contained in the msgList from the mailbox specified via mbox. The msgList must not be empty or this call will fail. The numeric ids in msgList have to be in the range "1 ... [dbName stat]" or this call will fail. If stat was not called before this call, dele will assume that there are zero messages in the mailbox. storageCmd get mbox msgId Returns a handle for the specified message. This handle is a mime token following the interface described in the documentation of package mime. The token is read-only. In other words, the caller is allowed to do anything with the token except to modify it. The msgId has to be in the range "1 ... [dbName stat]" or this call will fail. If stat was not called before this call, get will assume that there are zero messages in the mailbox. KEYWORDS
