""" Routines for manipulating RFC2047 encoded words.

This is currently a package-private API, but will be considered for promotion
to a public API if there is demand.


# An ecoded word looks like this:
#        =?charset[*lang]?cte?encoded_string?=
# for more information about charset see the charset module.  Here it is one
# of the preferred MIME charset names (hopefully; you never know when parsing).
# cte (Content Transfer Encoding) is either 'q' or 'b' (ignoring case).  In
# theory other letters could be used for other encodings, but in practice this
# (almost?) never happens.  There could be a public API for adding entries
# to the CTE tables, but YAGNI for now.  'q' is Quoted Printable, 'b' is
# Base64.  The meaning of encoded_string should be obvious.  'lang' is optional
# as indicated by the brackets (they are not part of the syntax) but is almost
# never encountered in practice.
# The general interface for a CTE decoder is that it takes the encoded_string
# as its argument, and returns a tuple (cte_decoded_string, defects).  The
# cte_decoded_string is the original binary that was encoded using the
# specified cte.  'defects' is a list of MessageDefect instances indicating any
# problems encountered during conversion.  'charset' and 'lang' are the
# corresponding strings extracted from the EW, case preserved.
# The general interface for a CTE encoder is that it takes a binary sequence
# as input and returns the cte_encoded_string, which is an ascii-only string.
# Each decoder must also supply a length function that takes the binary
# sequence as its argument and returns the length of the resulting encoded
# string.
# The main API functions for the module are decode, which calls the decoder
# referenced by the cte specifier, and encode, which adds the appropriate
# RFC 2047 "chrome" to the encoded string, and can optionally automatically
# select the shortest possible encoding.  See their docstrings below for
# details.
