NAME

       Mail::SPF::Term - SPF record term class

DESCRIPTION

       An object of class Mail::SPF::Term represents a term within an SPF record.
       Mail::SPF::Term cannot be instantiated directly.  Create an instance of a concrete sub-
       class instead.

   Constructor
       The following constructor is provided:

       new(%options): returns Mail::SPF::Term
           Abstract.  Creates a new SPF record term object.

           %options is a list of key/value pairs, however Mail::SPF::Term itself specifies no
           constructor options.

       new_from_string($text, %options): returns Mail::SPF::Term; throws
       Mail::SPF::ENothingToParse, Mail::SPF::EInvalidTerm
           Abstract.  Creates a new SPF record term object by parsing the string and any options
           given.

   Class methods
       The following class methods are provided:

       name_pattern: returns Regexp
           Returns a regular expression that matches any legal name for an SPF record term.

   Instance methods
       The following instance methods are provided:

       text: returns string; throws Mail::SPF::ENoUnparsedText
           Returns the unparsed text of the term.  Throws a Mail::SPF::ENoUnparsedText exception
           if the term was created synthetically instead of being parsed, and no text was
           provided.

       name: returns string
           Abstract.  Returns the name of the term.
