uploading .rtf files to the web

uploading .rtf files to the web

uploading .rtf files to the web

problem perl code: uploading .rtf files

$ppc='pphold/pp' . $cap;
open (DTION, ">","$ppc") or die "$!";
#binmode DTION;
while ($chunk=read ($cap, $data, 1024)) {
print DTION $data;
close DTION;

and I get this mess when displaying uploaded rtf file

{\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang1033{\fonttbl{\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Arial;}} {\*\generator Msftedit;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs20 Can we eat here
\par Pretty please mama\par }

the original rtf file uploaded looks like this:

Can we eat here<br />
Pretty please mama

perl particulars:

#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use CGI ':standard';
use DBI;
print "Content-type: text/html\n\n";

RE: uploading .rtf files to the web

Both of those links display correctly for me.


RE: uploading .rtf files to the web

audio pro,

What code did you use to display both files?

RE: uploading .rtf files to the web

I followed your links and both files worked as expected.
The 'mess' you referred to in your first post is the rtf file being displayed as a plain text file but why it works with some and not others for you is unclear.
