RTF corrupted when sent to email

ikkon has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I have a script that pulls from a database and creates a pdf or rtf based on the users input, the pdf works fine and emails fine, then if they want a rtf it creates it just fine but when sent in email using MIME::Lite it gives me a error: the document name or path is not valid. Try these suggestions. *Check file permissions for the document or drive *Use the File Open dialog box to locate the document I have no Idea what is causing this issue this is the code I am using its kinda long UPDATE: ok I fixed it, the RTF:: Writer module has a faulty close function so I re-wrote the function:
sub RTF::Writer::close { return unless $_[0][2]; # Already closed?! #DEBUG > 1 and print "Closing $_[0]\n"; $_[0]->print(\$_[0][1]) if length $_[0][1]; $_[0][2]->close(); # Call close directly undef $_[0][2]; # ...presumably clausing any FH to close and dest +roy. $_[0][1] = ''; return; }
this solved the problem thanks for the help
