- This is just an FYI -
When one tries to attach large files (> 150MB)using soap mime, the
process grows to 2GB and then come back with an out of memory error.
130MB files seem to work, though the process grows pretty big.
The perl MIME module seems to read the entire file into memory and
pass that object from call to call and hence the process grows.
Essentially, the stack is big.
My work around was to use exec a Java program (using Axis) and send
the file accross.
