Subject Re: read_client_block changes in 1.2?
Date Sun, 22 Sep 1996 19:04:39 GMT

I spotted the same problem with mod_perl_fast with 1.2 and had to change

bytes = read_client_block(php_rqst, buf, length);


bytes = read_client_block(php_rqst, buf, length+1);

I think the routine being called takes care of the +1 safety check
for not running off the end of the buffer, therefore giving it just
"length" bytes to work with effectively reduces this to length-1 and
it hasn't got enough space to read everything from the client and
it just hangs.
