Subject: Problems serving .PNG files
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 394b
PNG files are broken when served through Net::HTTPServer. Converting the files to GIF allows them to be served correctly. If I download a PNG through the webserver it is one byte shorter than the original PNG. (This is perl 5.8.0 on WinXP Pro). I don't have a hex editor right now (know a good one?) to be able to tell exactly which byte differs, but I'm attaching a sample PNG (a folder icon).

Hi there, I noticed a similar behaviour when serving ZIP files under windows - do you use windows, too? However, the fix is easy: simply patch with the attached patch file... Regards, Sini
