Hello, I noticed a behavior change somewhere in the Email::MIME stack when header_str_set is passed a string with a single-quote (') character in it.
On my Debian stable (stretch) machine the behavior is to leave the single quote alone. On Debian unstable/sid, a backslash is added before the single-quote. Changes from stretch to current sid are as follows: perl (including Encode.pm) 5.24.1-3+deb9u3 -> 5.26.2-3 libemail-mime-perl 1.937-1 -> 1.946-1 unchanged: libemail-mime-encodings-perl 1.315-1 -> 1.315-2 (only Debian-specific packaging changes, I suspect) I think the old behavior (not adding backslash) is correct, but I'm not sure. I can work around the problem with "header_set" instead. use strict; use warnings; use Email::MIME; my $mime = Email::MIME->create; my $h = 'From'; my $n = q("Quoted N'Ame" <f...@example.com>); $mime->header_str_set($h, $n); print $mime->header($h), "\n"; # adds backslash to ' Konstantin hit this with public-inbox on CentOS but using newer modules from CPAN and older Perl: https://public-inbox.org/meta/2a2bf0e1-fd1f-f8bf-95bc-dac47906e...@linuxfoundation.org/ # cpanm --info Email::MIME RJBS/Email-MIME-1.946.tar.gz # cpanm --info Email::MIME::Encodings RJBS/Email-MIME-Encodings-1.315.tar.gz # cpanm --info Email::Simple RJBS/Email-Simple-2.214.tar.gz # perl --version This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 3 (v5.16.3) built for x86_64-linux-thread-multi (with 33 registered patches, see perl -V for more detail)
