[REBOL] Re: need advice on parsing image data

From: brett:codeconscious at: 28-Apr-2001 21:11

Me again. I realised a few holes in my script. And your problem has given my some angst with my message-tools.r script. When dealing with emails we can use import-email which assumes that the email has been read with a READ. The read does the line termination conversion. So ok. But your post data file has shown that to deal with binary data I would have to deal with CRLF line termination ( RFC1521 appendix G talks about this). So now I'm somewhat confused as to what I should do to get my message-tools.r script handle mime-emails and mime-forms. Argh!

I'm no expert but here's my thinking. 1) The data returned from the post should initially be treated as binary - because you have image data that is binary and has not been encoded. So what I did was use read/binary to get your post-data file. I don't know for sure, but it is possible some clients may upload the file data in a different encoding like Base 64 rather than straight binary. So you may need to handle the case where a content-transfer-encoding header is given. 2) Though you data is binary doesn't mean you can't parse it like a string. Just remember to use /all refinement of parse. I already had some mime type handling stuff for emails. So I changed around a little bit to handle your file as well. It is very possible I still haven't handled the RFCs properly but it seems to work at the moment. Using Rebo/View Try this script - The view part is just to show that I succesfully got your image data. do post-data: read/binary r: decode-mime-parts mime-parts? post-data ---------------------------7d1a92c9014c write/binary %tf.jpg r/7/content view layout [image %tf.jpg] BTW I'd like to know how to display the image without having to write the file first - anyone - please? Hope it helps you.

However, REBOL will not parse the image data. It gets stuck when it reaches an unknown character, which shows up in Notepad as a square. As you can see, I'm not even able to copy-and-paste the actual image data from the text file into this e-mail. Does anyone have any advice on how to parse this image data? Ryan C.
