Mail::Box::Tie(3)     User Contributed Perl Documentation    Mail::Box::Tie(3)

NAME
       Mail::Box::Tie -	access an existing message-folder as an	array or hash

SYNOPSIS
       As an array:

	use Mail::Box::Tie;
	tie my(@inbox),	Mail::Box::Tie::ARRAY => $folder;
	tie my(@inbox),	Mail::Box::Tie => $folder;    #	deprecated
	print $inbox[3];

       or as hash:

	tie my(%inbox),	Mail::Box::Tie::HASH =>	$folder;
	tie my(%inbox),	Mail::Box::Tie => $folder;    #	deprecated
	print $inbox{'<12379.124879@example.com>'};

DESCRIPTION
       The use of "Mail::Box::Tie" is deprecated, because it is	succeeded by
       two separate modules: Mail::Box::Tie::ARRAY and Mail::Box::Tie::HASH.
       However,	this module still works.

       Folders certainly look like an array of messages, so why	not just
       access them as one?  Or,	the order is not important, but	the message-
       ids are (give relations): why not access	them from a hash based on this
       message-id?  Programs using one of these	ties will look simpler than
       programs	using the more traditional method calls.
