       Mail::Box::Tie - access an existing message-folder as an array or hash

       As an array:

        use Mail::Box::Tie;
        tie my(@inbox), Mail::Box::Tie::ARRAY => $folder;
        tie my(@inbox), Mail::Box::Tie => $folder;    # deprecated
        print $inbox[3];

       or as hash:

        tie my(%inbox), Mail::Box::Tie::HASH => $folder;
        tie my(%inbox), Mail::Box::Tie => $folder;    # deprecated
        print $inbox{'<12379.124879 AT example.com>'};

       The use of "Mail::Box::Tie" is deprecated, because it is succeeded by two separate
       modules: Mail::Box::Tie::ARRAY and Mail::Box::Tie::HASH.  However, this module still

       Folders certainly look like an array of messages, so why not just access them as one?  Or,
       the order is not important, but the message-ids are (give relations): why not access them
       from a hash based on this message-id?  Programs using one of these ties will look simpler
       than programs using the more traditional method calls.

       This module is part of Mail-Box distribution version 2.117, built on August 24, 2014.
