You might try setting binmode on your filehandle before you read from it. It will certainly let you read past the EOF marker under NT, but it may have other side effects. Only tests on your specific systems/files will tell...

Strictly speaking, though, it sounds like your "XML file that has binary material in it" isn't an XML file. It's a file that happens to contain an XML string in it. A minor-sounding (but very important) distinction.

[1nickt]: I though the gamers like that because they bash the keys so hard.
[ambrus]: and I've seen motherboards with no fast expansion ports for a video card but built-in hardware RAID advertized as "gaming".

[ambrus]: 1nickt: my impression is that the gamers like the softer springs, because fast reaction time is more important to them then feedback from keypresses to recognize typos.
[1nickt]: Ah, I see. I did read some gamer mag reviews, and yes, they lamented the fact that laptops with no discrete video card are sold as "gaming" hardware.
[1nickt]: But, they do have red keyboard backlighting! And gargoyles on the front, or words like "Maxxx" here and there. They know their demographic!
[1nickt]: True gamers don;t buy Dells, HPs, or Lenovos, I think ;-)
[ambrus]: The keyboard I bought doesn't have backlighting. I specifically had to select for that, because so many keyboards these days have lights. Why would I want lights in the keyboard? I want lights in the room, such as on the ceiling, not in the keyboard.
