URI::data(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation	  URI::data(3)

NAME
       URI::data - URI that contains immediate data

SYNOPSIS
	use URI;

	$u = URI->new("data:");
	$u->media_type("image/gif");
	$u->data(scalar(`cat camel.gif`));
	print "$u\n";
	open(XV, "|xv -") and print XV $u->data;

DESCRIPTION
       The "URI::data" class supports "URI" objects belonging to the data URI
       scheme.	The data URI scheme is specified in RFC	2397.  It allows
       inclusion of small data items as	"immediate" data, as if	it had been
       included	externally.  Examples:

	 data:,Perl%20is%20good

	 data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODdhIAAgAIAAAAAAAPj8+CwAAAAAI
	   AAgAAAClYyPqcu9AJyCjtIKc5w5xP14xgeO2tlY3nWcajmZZdeJcG

	   JtnE2KizVUkYJVZZ1nczBxXlFopZBtoJ2diXGdNUymmJdFMAADs=

       "URI" objects belonging to the data scheme support the common methods
       (described in URI) and the following two	scheme-specific	methods:

       $uri->media_type( [$new_media_type] )
	   Can be used to get or set the media type specified in the URI.  If
	   no media type is specified, then the	default
	   "text/plain;charset=US-ASCII" is returned.

       $uri->data( [$new_data] )
	   Can be used to get or set the data contained	in the URI.  The data
	   is passed unescaped (in binary form).  The decision about whether
	   to base64 encode the	data in	the URI	is taken automatically,	based
	   on the encoding that	produces the shorter URI string.
