Re: 'header' test and whitespace

2005-11-29 04:43:08

for the base specification, I would like a tiny change to make this
a little more apparent:

   For instance, the test `header :contains ["To", "Cc"]
-  ["me(_at_)example(_dot_)com", 
"me00(_at_)landru(_dot_)example(_dot_)edu"]' is true if either the
+  ["me(_at_)example(_dot_)com", 
"me00(_at_)landru(_dot_)example(_dot_)edu"]' is true if either a
   To header or Cc header of the input message contains either of the
   email addresses "me(_at_)example(_dot_)com" or 

Seems like a good idea to me.

I'm repeating it once more so Philip may take note of it :-).

also in the latest draft is this:

   The preferred way to test whether a given header is either empty or
   absent is to combine an "exists" test and a "header" test:

           anyof (header :is "Cc" "", not exists "Cc")

this will evaluate to true for:

  Cc: someone(_at_)example(_dot_)org

it may not be worth considering this rather degenerate case.  it seems
to me Bcc is a more likely candidate for the stated test.  however, one
way of stating the test correctly is:

  not (header :matches "Cc" "?*")

it's not much more convoluted, so I think it is worthwhile to change the
"preferred way".
