Text part is viewed fine but tiff output cannot be read by any viewer. Paint, Fax reader, MS Image etc. Running on red hat Linux.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Encode; my $tiff_flag = 0; my $count = 0; open(FILE,'<',$ARGV[0]) or die 'Error opening input file'; binmode(FILE) or die 'Error setting binary mode on input file'; while (read (FILE,$_,4)) { my $rec_len = unpack("N",$_); die "Bad record length: $rec_len" unless ($rec_len > 0); read (FILE,$_,$rec_len); if (substr($_,0,2) eq "\xF5\xF2") { if ($tiff_flag) { $count++; open (TIFF, '>', $ARGV[0] . '_img' . sprintf(" +%04d",$count) . '.tiff') or die "Can't create image file"; binmode(TIFF) or die 'Error setting bina +ry mode on image file'; print TIFF substr($_,117); close TIFF; } $_ = substr($_,0,117 +); } print decode ('c +p1047', $_) . "\n"; } close FILE;

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
