in thread CGI-Attachment with many \0's

Hi,
first of thanks for staying with me for so long!

Usually print is my debugger ;-) But in this case it makes little sense, since I know that the archive is created: it can be written to the local disk just fine.

The problem only arises when the archive is delivered via Webserver, and even then only on one of two almost identical machines. Funny business, that is.

Regards... Stefan

    Have you tried the $|=1?

    I suspect this has got something todo with the timing of events (are these 2 machines different hardware or do they have a different workload?). The webserver delivery might be done at a time where the archiving/tempfile-creation is not totally finished. I don't know your code and modules you are using, so this is only a guess.

    In that case you might also try, as a debugging tool, to add some 'sleep'-commands inbetween the tempfile-creation/archive-creation and delivery via the webserver, and see if that changes the behaviour.

    Maybe you could also post the relevant piece of your code, fresh eyes can help a lot.

      Hi,
      That's it!! Of course I had the $|++ in my code, but that was only for STDDOUT and not for the tempfiles. Now I switched to doing it all in memory and not using any tempfiles at all and it all works fine.

      :-)

      Thanks, man!

      Regards... Stefan
