I would like to write a SOAP client and server to send and to receive files. The files will mostly be exe, zip, and various image files. Whats the best way to accomplish this in perl? I have been reading some stuff on the net and some suggest using MIME some suggest other methods. I just want someone with experience doing this to give me their feedback.

Actually I figured it out already. Much easier way

my $data;
my $fh;
my $filename = $ARGV[1];
open ($fh, "$filename");
while (<$fh>)
close $fh;
my $som = $client->file($filename, $data);
