NAME
       Mail::DKIM::Canonicalization::Base - base class for canonicalization methods

SYNOPSIS
	 # canonicalization results get output to STDOUT
	 my $method = new Mail::DKIM::Canonicalization::relaxed(
			   output_fh => *STDOUT,
			   Signature => $dkim_signature);

	 # add headers
	 $method->add_header("Subject: this is the subject\015\012");
	 $method->finish_header(Headers => \@all_headers);

	 # add body
	 $method->add_body("This is the body.\015\012");
	 $method->add_body("Another two lines\015\012of the body.\015\012");
	 $method->finish_body;

	 # this adds the signature to the end
	 $method->finish_message;

CONSTRUCTOR
       Use the new() method of the desired canonicalization implementation class to construct a
       canonicalization object. E.g.

	 my $method = new Mail::DKIM::Canonicalization::relaxed(
			   output_fh => *STDOUT,
			   Signature => $dkim_signature);

       The constructors accept these arguments:

       Signature
	   (Required) Provide the DKIM signature being constructed (if the message is being
	   signed), or the DKIM signature being verified (if the message is being verified). The
	   canonicalization method either writes parameters to the signature, or reads parameters
	   from the signature (e.g. the h= tag).

       output
	   If specified, the canonicalized message will be passed to this object with the PRINT
	   method.

       output_digest
	   If specified, the canonicalized message will be added to this digest.  (Uses the add()
	   method.)

       output_fh
	   If specified, the canonicalized message will be written to this file handle.

       If none of the output parameters are specified, then the canonicalized message is appended
       to an internal buffer. The contents of this buffer can be accessed using the result()
       method.

METHODS
   add_body() - feeds part of the body into the canonicalization
	 $method->add_body("This is the body.\015\012");
	 $method->add_body("Another two lines\015\012of the body.\015\012");

       The body should be fed one or more "lines" at a time.  I.e. do not feed part of a line.

   finish_header() - called when the header has been completely parsed
	 $method->finish_header(Headers => \@all_headers);

       Formerly the canonicalization object would only get the header data through successive
       invocations of add_header(). However, that required the canonicalization object to store a
       copy of the entire header so that it could choose the order in which headers were fed to
       the digest object. This is inefficient use of memory, since a message with many signatures
       may use many canonicalization objects and each canonicalization object has its own copy of
       the header.

       The headers array is an array of one element per header field, with the headers not
       processed/canonicalized in any way.

   result()
	 my $result = $method->result;

       If you did not specify an object or handle to send the output to, the result of the
       canonicalization is stored in the canonicalization method itself, and can be accessed
       using this method.
