Yayy! It's working now with the changes you made. Great Thanks !!!

Thanks too for the improved time subroutine.

Just out of curiosity, how does changing the chunk/buff to 4104 make the pdf file work? Will it work for all other pdf files created in similar fashion? Is 4104 a sort of magic number - would other numbers like 4105 or 4106 work too?

    The max encoded line length is 76. 3 bytes = 4 chars so 57 bytes = one full line. Any multiple of 3 avoids adding filler characters '=' to make up the encoded 4 characters and multiples of 57 give minimal line endings. 4095 also worked but 4104 is just the nearest multiple of 57 to 4096. See EXAMPLES in MIME::Base64

      Many thanks for your explanation :)
