mail::Header::plain — An unstructured, US-ASCII-only, E-mail header.


#include <libmail/headers.H>

mail::Header::plain plain_header("Content-Type", "text/plain");

std::cout << plain_header.toString();


This class creates an unstructured E-mail header. Two arguments are provided to the constructor: the header's name, and its contents. The header contents must contain only US-ASCII characters. Use the mail::Header::encoded(3x) object to create a header containing non-US-ASCII content.

The toString() returns the header as a single text string: name: value. Long headers are folded at the nearest whitespace.
