Subject: FIX: extract_multiple returns garbage unknown when a prefix has length and there are no unknown characters
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 758b
Attached is a fix to 1.95. If an extractor is used, there are no unknown characters, and a prefix is pulled, the unknown contents are incorrectly evaluated. The $unkpos indicates the start of the unknown region. The bug is that this is set to the current position (after the extractor match) and then the clause in "$lastpos-$unkpos" ends up being negative which leads to unexpected results. The correct behavior (attached) is to set $unkpos to $lastpos.
