Glad it's useful, though I have to confess that this code -- almost three years old -- is not something I would write today. Interesting how we evolve, eh?

    I tried the code that you posted a while ago. I used it on a Win2k server and never had any problem. I switched onto Unix iPlanet and the code does not work anymore. The last line :

    print header(-type => 'image/gif', -Content_length => length $file), $file;

    causes the script to hang and never return... I am not too familiar with iPlanet ... can it be a problem with the web server ?

    Do you have any idea why ?

    ... use CGI qw(header path_info); my $file = getNoImage($SHOP); print header(-type => 'image/gif', -Content_length => length $file), $ +file; sub getNoImage { my $SHOP = shift || croak ("ProcessAction : Missing Shop data"); my ($chunk, $image); open IMAGEFILE, "$SHOP->{-TEMPLATE_PATH}/img/NoImage.gif" or die " +Cannot open $SHOP->{-TEMPLATE_PATH}/img/NoImage.gif: $!\n"; binmode IMAGEFILE; while (read(IMAGEFILE, $chunk, 1024)) { $image .= $chunk; } close IMAGEFILE; return $image; }
