imap_mime_header_decode — Decode MIME header elements


array imap_mime_header_decode ( string $text )

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



The MIME text


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.


Example#1 imap_mime_header_decode() example

"=?ISO-8859-1?Q?Keld_J=F8rn_Simonsen?= <[email protected]>";

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

Ovenstående eksempel vil udskrive:

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

Charset: default
Text:  <[email protected]>

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.
