News::AutoReply - derivative of News::Article for generating autoreplies
use News::AutoReply; $reply = News::AutoReply->new($message);
Like News::Article, but must be given a reference to another article at creation time - initialises To, In-Reply-To, References etc. correctly as an automatic reply.
use News::AutoReply; Exports nothing.
new ( ORIGINAL ) Construct an autoreply to a message, assuming that the Reply-To (if present, otherwise the From) header of "ORIGINAL" is valid. Returns a new Article object with no body or envelope sender, but with suitable headers. If an environment variable LOOP is defined, it is used as the contents of an X-Loop header added to the reply (this is useful when using this code in progs launched from a procmail recipe). Always preserves X-Loop headers in the original. The reference-folding code could probably be improved.
