Crypt::OpenPGP::UserIDUser Contributed Perl DocumentaCrypt::OpenPGP::UserID(3)

NAME
       Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID -	PGP User ID packet

SYNOPSIS
	   use Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID;

	   my $uid = Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID->new( Identity => 'Foo' );
	   my $serialized = $uid->save;
	   my $identity	= $uid->id;

DESCRIPTION
       Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID is a PGP User ID packet. Such a packet is	used
       to represent the	name and email address of the key holder, and
       typically contains an RFC822 mail name like

	   Foo Bar <foo@bar.com>

USAGE
   Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID->new(	[ Identity => $identity	] )
       Creates a new User ID packet object and returns that object. If you do
       not supply an identity, the object is created empty; this is used, for
       example,	in parse (below), to create an empty packet which is then
       filled from the data in the buffer.

       If you wish to initialize a non-empty object, supply new	with the
       Identity	parameter along	with a value $identity which should generally
       be in RFC822 form (above).

   $uid->save
       Returns the text	of the user ID packet; this is the string passed to
       new (above) as $identity, for example.

   Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID->parse($buffer)
       Given $buffer, a	Crypt::OpenPGP::Buffer object holding (or with offset
       pointing	to) a User ID packet, returns a	new <Crypt::OpenPGP::UserID>
       object, initialized with	the user ID data in the	buffer.

   $uid->id
       Returns the user	ID data	(eg. the string	passed as $identity to new,
       above).
