I'm writting a web application to upload both text and binary file from client machine to server machine using FORM.  The library that I using to do the actual upload is "CGI_Lite.pm" (perl).  Unfortunately, this library does not handle binary file correctly.  Is there any library out there that does the job?

Thanks

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

Are you interested in perl scripts only? I have a solution in Java running as a servlet. If it has any interest leave your e-mail and I'll send it to you.

hdo,
why did you reject my answer ? I use cgi-lib.pl for the purposes you mention without problems. You asked for a library that can do the job, and I gave you one. An explanation why you rejectd my answer seems in place.

your site "http://www.supamall.com/suparealtor/files/" doesn't
have anything to do with uploading a binary file.  I'm looking
for a perl library that can upload binary and text file...  The library "cgi-lib.pl" doesn't work for binary file.  

If any one know, please help me with this...

Thanks!

hdo,

cgi-lib DOES binary file upload. I use it for that. I don't know why you think it does not. I use it for .doc, .pdf, .gif, .jpg files (to name some examples). Please read the documentation on their website again. I have not idea what purposes you have in mind which can't be done by cgi-lib.pl

file-upload is always binary (because you never know what format the file is).
