NAME
       URI::data - URI that contain immediate data

SYNOPSIS
	use URI;

	$u = URI->new("data:");
	$u->media_type("image/gif");
	$u->data(scalar(`cat camel.gif`));
	print "$u\n";
	open(XV, "|xv -") and print XV $u->data;

DESCRIPTION
       The "URI::data" class supports "URI" objects belonging to the data URI scheme.  The data
       URI scheme is specified in RFC 2397.  It allows inclusion of small data items as "immedi-
       ate" data, as if it had been included externally.  Examples:

	 data:,Perl%20is%20good

	 data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODdhIAAgAIAAAAAAAPj8+CwAAAAAI
	   AAgAAAClYyPqcu9AJyCjtIKc5w5xP14xgeO2tlY3nWcajmZZdeJcG

       "URI" objects belonging to the data scheme support the common methods (described in URI)
       and the following two scheme specific methods:

       $uri->media_type( [$new_media_type] )
	   This method can be used to get or set the media type specified in the URI.  If no
	   media type is specified, then the default "text/plain;charset=US-ASCII" is returned.

       $uri->data( [$new_data] )
	   This method can be used to get or set the data contained in the URI.  The data is
	   passed unescaped (in binary form).  The decision about whether to base64 encode the
	   data in the URI is taken automatically based on what encoding produces the shortest
	   URI string.
