NAME

       Mail::SPF::Mech::Include - SPF record "include" mechanism class

DESCRIPTION

       An object of class Mail::SPF::Mech::Include represents an SPF record mechanism of type
       "include".

   Constructors
       The following constructors are provided:

       new(%options): returns Mail::SPF::Mech::Include
           Creates a new SPF record "include" mechanism object.

           %options is a list of key/value pairs representing any of the following options:

           qualifier
           domain_spec
               See "new" in Mail::SPF::Mech.

       new_from_string($text, %options): returns Mail::SPF::Mech::Include; throws
       Mail::SPF::ENothingToParse, Mail::SPF::EInvalidMech
           Creates a new SPF record "include" mechanism object by parsing the string and any
           options given.

   Class methods
       The following class methods are provided:

       default_qualifier
       qualifier_pattern
           See "Class methods" in Mail::SPF::Mech.

       name: returns string
           Returns 'include'.

       name_pattern: returns Regexp
           Returns a regular expression that matches a mechanism name of 'include'.

   Instance methods
       The following instance methods are provided:

       text
       qualifier
       params
       stringify
           See "Instance methods" in Mail::SPF::Mech.

       domain_spec: returns Mail::SPF::MacroString
           Returns the "domain-spec" parameter of the mechanism.

       match($server, $request): returns boolean
           Performs a recursive SPF check using the given SPF server and request objects and
           substituting the mechanism's target domain name for the request's authority domain.
           The result of the recursive SPF check is translated as follows:

                Recursive result | Effect
               ------------------+-----------------
                pass             | return true
                fail             | return false
                softfail         | return false
                neutral          | return false
                none             | throw PermError
                permerror        | throw PermError
                temperror        | throw TempError

           See RFC 4408, 5.2, for the exact algorithm used.
