Overview

Provides a single class to call to create a new structured or unstructured field. Works out per RFC what field of field it is being given and returns the correct field of class back on new.

Per RFC 2822

2.2. Header Fields

   Header fields are lines composed of a field name, followed by a colon
   (":"), followed by a field body, and terminated by CRLF.  A field
   name MUST be composed of printable US-ASCII characters (i.e.,
   characters that have values between 33 and 126, inclusive), except
   colon.  A field body may be composed of any US-ASCII characters,
   except for CR and LF.  However, a field body may contain CRLF when
   used in header "folding" and  "unfolding" as described in section
   2.2.3.  All field bodies MUST conform to the syntax described in
   sections 3 and 4 of this standard.

Constructor Details

- (Field) initialize(name, value = nil, charset = 'utf-8')

Accepts a string:

Field.new("field-name: field data")

Or name, value pair:

Field.new("field-name", "value")

Or a name by itself:

Field.new("field-name")

Note, does not want a terminating carriage return. Returns self appropriately parsed. If value is not a string, then it will be passed through as is, for example, content-type field can accept an array with the type and a hash of parameters:

Field.new('content-type', ['text', 'plain', {:charset => 'UTF-8'}])
