PerlIO::via::QuotedPrint - PerlIO layer for quoted-printable strings

    use PerlIO::via::QuotedPrint;
    open(my $in, '<:via(QuotedPrint)', 'file.qp') or
        die "Can't open file.qp for reading: $!\n";
    open(my $out, '>:via(QuotedPrint)', 'file.qp') or
        die "Can't open file.qp for writing: $!\n";

This module implements a PerlIO layer that works on files encoded in the quoted-printable format. It will decode from quoted-printable while reading from a handle, and it will encode as quoted-printable while writing to a handle.
