Subject: Final MIME delimiter requires following linefeed
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 1.3k
HTTP::Message parses MIME messages. As part of the parsing process, the subroutine _parts strips of the final delimiter and any following text using the line: $str =~ s/\r?\n--\Q$b\E--\r?\n.*//s; where $str holds the message and $b the boundary. This pattern requires at least a \n after the boundary in order to match. I am trying to interact with a web service, using the XML::Compile::SOAP modules, which use HTTP::Message, where the MIME response ends immediately after the final --boundary-- delimiter without any further line-ending. According to rfc2045 (and following), no characters following the final delimiter are necessary and the linefeed is not part of the delimiter: multipart-body := [preamble CRLF] dash-boundary transport-padding CRLF body-part *encapsulation close-delimiter transport-padding [CRLF epilogue] transport-padding := *LWSP-char ; Composers MUST NOT generate ; non-zero length transport ; padding, but receivers MUST ; be able to handle padding ; added by message transports. close-delimiter := delimiter "--" I'm using HTTP::Message 5.835, perl 5.10.1, Cygwin_NT-6.1 Thanks, Richard
