in thread How do I read POST data that is not encoded, and was submitted without a parameter name

Reply to updated node:

I would not completely ignore content-length. It can be incorrect sometimes (user agents can lie) but it is useful as upper limit for input data (and I use it as such in my code). I'm not sure but AFAIK under mod_perl you never get 'end of file' from STDIN. So even if content length is correct your code punishes good user agents with 45 seconds delay.
