Inherits From:nsIInputStream

The MIME stream separates headers and a datastream. It also allows automatic creation of the content-length header.

This interface is implemented by the following components:


Properties

PRBool addContentLength

When true a "Content-Length" header is automatically added to the stream. The value of the content-length is automatically calculated using the available() method on the data stream. The value is recalculated every time the stream is rewinded to the start. Not allowed to be changed once the stream has been started to be read.


Methods

void addHeader ( char* name , char* value ) void setData ( nsIInputStream stream )

void addHeader ( char* name , char* value )

Adds an additional header to the stream on the form "name: value". May not be called once the stream has been started to be read.

Arguments:
name: name of the header
value: value of the header

void setData ( nsIInputStream stream )

Sets data-stream. May not be called once the stream has been started to be read. The cursor of the new stream should be located at the beginning of the stream if the implementation of the nsIMIMEInputStream also is used as an nsISeekableStream.

Arguments:
stream: stream containing the data for the stream
