The multifile Module

The multifile module is a support module that allows you to treat each part of a multipart MIME message as an individual file, as shown in Example 6-14.

Example 6-14. Using the multifile Module

File: multifile-example-1.py

import multifile
import cgi, rfc822

infile = open("samples/sample.msg")

message = rfc822.Message(infile)

# print parsed header
for k, v in message.items():
 print k, "=", v

# use cgi support function to parse content-type header
type, params = cgi.parse_header(message["content-type"])

if type[:10] == "multipart/":

 # multipart message
 boundary = params["boundary"]

 file = multifile.MultiFile(infile)


 while file.next():

 submessage = rfc822.Message(file)

 # print submessage
 print "-" * 68
 for k, v in submessage.items():
 print k, "=", v
 print file.read()



 # plain message
 print infile.read()
