1608to Base64 or not to Base64
- Jun 12, 2002Hi,
I have a SOAP::Lite server that issues a LWP and returns the contents
of an arbitrary URL and in some instances there are charecters which
force SOAP::Lite to automatically Base64 encode the response. This is
and trying to Base64 decode something of that size is a bit slow.
Is there some way to make sure that SOAP::Lite doesn't Base64 this
stuff? Or is there a simple package I can look at to make sure that
the HTML is properly escaped so that the Base64 isn't triggered? I've
tried a XML/UTF8 escaping algorithm I found on perlmonks, but it
didn't escape all possible values that cause this issue (for example:
“ (“) and ” (”) have specifically given us
trouble in some instance)
I apologize if there is something obvious I'm missing, but it's been
a back burner issue until recently and I've only just now had the
time to ask about it.
