Subject Re: HTTP binary response

I believe there's some support for it in JMeter in terms of view results
tree. I can see images, displayed in response tab in the view results tree.
Images are binary data. You can also view PDF content as well, but it gets
displayed as bunch of funky characters with some text rather than a
rendered PDF. Not sure how other binary file types are rendered in the
response tab of view results tree, assume it would show like the PDF case
if no native viewer is built in, kinda like viewing a hex dump of a binary

FYI, I'm using JMeter 2.5 and higher versions, mostly JMeter 2.5
