Email::MIME::Encodings - A unified interface to MIME encoding and decoding

version 1.315

use Email::MIME::Encodings;
my $encoded = Email::MIME::Encodings::encode(base64 => $body);
my $decoded = Email::MIME::Encodings::decode(base64 => $encoded);

If a third argument is given, it is the encoding to which to fall back. If no valid codec can be found (considering both the first and third arguments) then an exception is raised.

This module simply wraps "MIME::Base64" and "MIME::QuotedPrint" so that you can throw the contents of a "Content-Transfer-Encoding" header at some text and have the right thing happen.

"MIME::Base64", "MIME::QuotedPrint", "Email::MIME".
