5.15.1 Header functions

Built-in Function: number message_header_size (number nmsg)

Return the size, in bytes of the headers of message nmsg. See the note to the message_size, above.

Built-in Function: number message_header_lines (number nmsg)

Return number of lines occupied by headers in message nmsg.

Built-in Function: number message_header_count (number nmsg, [string name])

Return number of headers in message nmsg.

If name is supplied, count only headers with that name.

Built-in Function: string message_find_header (number nmsg, string name [, number idx])

Return value of header name from the message nmsg. If the message contains several headers with the same name, optional parameter idx may be used to select one of them. Headers are numbered from ‘1’.

If no matching header is not found, the not_found exception is raised. If another error occurs, the failure exception is raised.

The returned string is a verbatim copy of the message contents (except for eventual CR-LF -> LF translation, see above). You might need to apply the unfold function to it (see unfold).

Returns the name of the nth header in message nmsg. If there is no such header, e_range exception is raised.

Built-in Function: string message_nth_header_value (number msg, number n)

Returns the value of the nth header in message nmsg. If there is no such header, e_range exception is raised.

Built-in Function: boolean message_has_header (number nmsg, string name [, number idx])

Return true if message nmsg contains header with the given name. If there are several headers with the same name, optional parameter idx may be used to select one of them.
