msg:makeContainer — Creates a new, unlinked, container message part


msg:makeContainer(mimetype, boundary, add_terminator);

mimetype: string
boundary: string, optional
add_terminator: boolean, optional


Creates a new, unlinked, container message part. The mimetype parameter specifies the MIME Content-Type that is to be used. If boundary is left unspecified, a random boundary will be generated on your behalf.

If add_terminator is true, "CRLF.CFLF" will be added to the container so that it can be used as the top part of a message. This parameter defaults to false.

Enable this function with the statement require('msys.extended.message');.
