imap_mime_header_decode

(PHP 4, PHP 5)

imap_mime_header_decodeDecode MIME header elements

Description

array imap_mime_header_decode ( string $text )

Decodes MIME message header extensions that are non ASCII text (see » RFC2047).

Parameters

text

The MIME text

Return Values

The decoded elements are returned in an array of objects, where each object has two properties, charset and text.

If the element hasn't been encoded, and in other words is in plain US-ASCII, the charset property of that element is set to default.

Examples

Example #1 imap_mime_header_decode() example

<?php
$text 
"=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Keld_J=F8rn_Simonsen?= <keld@example.com>";

$elements imap_mime_header_decode($text);
for (
$i=0$i<count($elements); $i++) {
    echo 
"Charset: {$elements[$i]->charset}\n";
    echo 
"Text: {$elements[$i]->text}\n\n";
}
?>

The above example will output:

Charset: ISO-8859-1
Text: Keld Jørn Simonsen

Charset: default
Text:  <keld@example.com>

In the above example we would have two elements, whereas the first element had previously been encoded with ISO-8859-1, and the second element would be plain US-ASCII.
