Have you tried getting the script to write the file to disk
can this file be retrieved by the clients correctly?
Yes, I've written that file to the /tmp-Dir, copied it to the HTTPD-root-directory accessed it directly and could download it just fine.
have you tried having the script simultaniously write a copy of the file and return it to the client?
No, I am using the following code:
my $tar = Archive::Tar->new;
# in a loop:
my $data = $tar->write();
print $q->header(-type => 'application/octet-stream',
-attachment => "edi.tar");
And remember: it works fine on two out of three machines. That is what makes me wonder so much.
you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion
