MIME::Decoder::QuotedPrint - encode/decode a "quoted-printable" stream


A generic decoder object; see MIME::Decoder for usage.


A MIME::Decoder subclass for the CW"quoted-printable" encoding. The name was chosen to jibe with the pre-existing MIME::QuotedPrint utility package, which this class actually uses to translate each line.

The decoder does a line-by-line translation from input to output.
The encoder does a line-by-line translation, breaking lines so that they fall under the standard 76-character limit for this encoding.

Note: just like MIME::QuotedPrint, we currently use the native CW"\n" for line breaks, and not CWCRLF. This may need to change in future versions.
