Subject: Errors with some jpeg files - makes Image::Info to fail
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 931b
Greetings, The problem occurs under perl 5.8 The test script below generates a message: "Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of string) at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.0/IO/ line 286." when reading the attached jpeg. This makes in turn Image::Info to fail. I may have missed an important point, but this behaviour seems dubious. Nota: no error message when using the test jpeg of Image::Info. It doesn't happen with all jpegs and the Image::Info tests do succeed. ======================== #!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use IO::String; my $head; my $filename = 'test.jpg'; my $binary = loadfile( $filename ); my $source = IO::String->new($binary); read($source, $head, 32) == 32 or die $!; sub loadfile { my $name = shift; local $/ = undef; open FILE, $name or die $!; my $content = <FILE>; close FILE; $content; } ======================== Regards, Pierre Denis Fotango

Subject: Platform details

These is the platform I tested on (basically it's a rh9). I've tested the previous version of IO::String with the same result.

Subject: Unicodes settings in RH
From: pdenis [...]
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 363b
The underlying reason is because RH9 sets everything as unicode by default. Hence, the binary data is read as unicode which may make IO::String to fail. This can be fixed by changing /etc/profile locale But I think this could be fixed by adding binmode($fh) in IO::String - I'm not sure... Regards
