Subject: parsing of spaces in Content-Type header line
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 819b
* $Email::MIME::VERSION = 1.82 * This is perl, v5.8.4 built for i386-linux-thread-multi * Linux localhost 2.6.11 #8 SMP Sun Mar 20 21:09:51 CET 2005 i686 GNU/Linux Given a header line where the attribute name and values have spaces near the equal sign: Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary = "abc123" then Email::MIME produces the following in _parse_attributes(): $attribs = {'boundary ' => ' abc123'} This in turn leads to that this snippet claims the message has only 1 part, but there are more really. my $msg = Email::MIME->new($raw); my @parts = $msg->parts; print scalar @parts; # says 1, should be 2 or whatever Patch line 42 in ContentType.pm, thus: s/^([^$tspecials]+?)\s*=\s*// or do { carp "Illegal Content-Type parameter $_"; That parses now correctly: $attribs = {'boundary' => 'abc123'}

What is generating these? Given RFC1521, space around the equals sign seems illegal.
Closed pending evidence. -- rjbs
