RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for mime::quotedprint (redhat section 3pm)

MIME::QuotedPrint(3pm)		 Perl Programmers Reference Guide	   MIME::QuotedPrint(3pm)

NAME
       MIME::QuotedPrint - Encoding and decoding of quoted-printable strings

SYNOPSIS
	use MIME::QuotedPrint;

	$encoded = encode_qp($decoded);
	$decoded = decode_qp($encoded);

DESCRIPTION
       This module provides functions to encode and decode strings into the Quoted-Printable
       encoding specified in RFC 2045 - MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions).  The
       Quoted-Printable encoding is intended to represent data that largely consists of bytes
       that correspond to printable characters in the ASCII character set.  Non-printable charac-
       ters (as defined by english americans) are represented by a triplet consisting of the
       character "=" followed by two hexadecimal digits.

       The following functions are provided:

       encode_qp($str)
	   This function will return an encoded version of the string given as argument.

	   Note that encode_qp() does not change newlines "\n" to the CRLF sequence even though
	   this might be considered the right thing to do (RFC 2045 (Q-P Rule #4)).

       decode_qp($str);
	   This function will return the plain text version of the string given as argument.

       If you prefer not to import these routines into your namespace you can call them as:

	 use MIME::QuotedPrint ();
	 $encoded = MIME::QuotedPrint::encode($decoded);
	 $decoded = MIME::QuotedPrint::decode($encoded);
