Method MIME.quote()

Method quote

string quote(array(string|int) lexical_elements)


This function is the inverse of the MIME.tokenize function.

A header field value is constructed from a sequence of lexical elements. Characters (ints) are taken to be special-characters, whereas strings are encoded as atoms or quoted-strings, depending on whether they contain any special characters.


There is no way to construct a domain-literal using this function. Neither can it be used to produce comments.
