( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In my (not really elegant, not really recommended) approaches, I recursively descend down the MIME message tree and usually output the Content-Type headers, to get a first view of the mail structure:

sub dump_parts($msg, $level=0) { print " " x $level, $msg->content_type, "\n"; for my $part ($msg->parts) { dump_parts($part, $level+1); } } dump_parts( $entity );

Then, I usually modify dump_parts to actually handle the content types (and other criteria) of the parts I'm interested in.

This discussion has given me the idea that maybe having an SQL, XPath or CSS-like query language for the parts could improve things, but so far, I haven't come up with a good enough concept to implement this.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
