CentOS 7.0 - man page for mail::filter (centos section 3)

Mail::Filter(3) 	       User Contributed Perl Documentation		  Mail::Filter(3)

       Mail::Filter - Filter mail through multiple subroutines

	use Mail::Filter;

	my $filter = Mail::Filter->new( \&filter1, \&filter2 );

	my $mail   = Mail::Internet->new( [<>] );
	my $mail   = $filter->filter($mail);

	my $folder = Mail::Folder->new( .... );
	my $filter->filter($folder);

       "Mail::Filter" provides an interface to filtering Email through multiple subroutines.

       "Mail::Filter" filters mail by calling each filter subroutine in turn. Each filter
       subroutine is called with two arguments, the first is the filter object and the second is
       the mail or folder object being filtered.

       The result from each filter sub is passed to the next filter as the mail object. If a
       filter subroutine returns undef, then "Mail::Filter" will abort and return immediately.

       The function returns the result from the last subroutine to operate on the mail object.

       Mail::Filter->new([FILTER [, ... ]])
	   Create a new "Mail::Filter" object with the given filter subroutines. Each filter may
	   be either a code reference or the name of a method to call on the <Mail::Filter>

       $obj->add(FILTER [, FILTER ...])
	   Add the given filters to the end of the fliter list.

       $obj->filter(MAIL-OBJECT | MAIL-FOLDER)
	   If the first argument is a "Mail::Internet" object, then this object will be passed
	   through the filter list. If the first argument is a "Mail::Folder" object, then each
	   message in turn will be passed through the filter list.

	   While the "filter" method is called with a "Mail::Folder" object, these filter
	   subroutines can call this method to obtain the folder object that is being processed.

	   If the "filter" method is called with a "Mail::Folder" object, then the filter
	   subroutines may call this method to obtain the message number of the message that is
	   being processed.

       This module is part of the MailTools distribution, http://perl.overmeer.net/mailtools/.

       The MailTools bundle was developed by Graham Barr.  Later, Mark Overmeer took over
       maintenance without commitment to further development.
