Subject Re: [jira] Closed: (COUCHDB-167) Files can not be attached to documents with forward slashes in their names to simulate a folder hierarchy
Date Tue, 30 Dec 2008 17:09:33 GMT
I was using Futon through Firefox 3.0.5 to upload the attachments.

I tried curl and it does work!  :)

The mime type of the file is "application/x-www-form-urlencoded" when
it hits couch, so I need to figure out how to properly PUT the binary
file, but it looks like the plumbing is working. Thanks so much!

Can anyone reply with the proper arguments I should pass to curl in
order to PUT a binary attachment? Thanks.
