Subject Re: [users@httpd] How to send Binary Files Inline?
Date Wed, 02 Apr 2003 20:27:09 GMT
Thanks for the reply.   I did the switch to the native redhat 1.3.27
apache, and the other changes noted.  Now my output looks like...

Content-Type: application/pdf^M
Content-disposition: filename=ny000473_speccase_1_1.pdf^M

%PDF-1.2
%Gl~O"
6 0 obj
<</Length 7 0 R/Filter /FlateDecode>>
stream

But we still get...
[Wed Apr  2 14:07:50 2003] [error] [client 209.124.77.249] malformed header 
from script. Bad header=Binary file (standard input) m: /usr/appl/cgi/bdny

I tossed in your " Transfer-Encoding: chunked" in the interest of science, 
but that didn't do anything either. 

Now, PHP is a module, right?  And that's different from apache invoking 
a separate cgi script and reading its StdOut. 

NOW HERE'S THE interesting thing - If I replace the actual .pdf file
with a plain text file that begins with the line %PDF-, then apache is
completely happy.  Of course Acrobat is not really thrilled, but that's
to be expected.
