[REBOL] Re: need advice on parsing image data

From: brett:codeconscious at: 29-Apr-2001 10:55

Yes and Yes. As far as I can see, the official network form of the data uses CRLF (this BTW is true of POP etc). After using Rebol for a while, we may forget that a READ converts CRLF to a newline - which is not so good for binary data - hence the /binary refinement of READ. This fact escaped my memory until I read the section in the Core manul on line conversion/endings. Hence, my issue in trying to create a set of functions useful for post data and for email which we tend to acquire with a READ in Rebol (for email is shouldn't be a problem because Email generally does not handle binary data - attachments and encoded in a mail-safe form before transport).
