( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi, I retrieve the body of my message from an Oracle 8i LONGRAW column, the data being a text file previously inserted using the <input type="file"> form element. I'm then using a perl script to send the content via MIME::Lite:
$dbh->{LongReadLen} = 256 * 1024; ($body) = $dbh->selectrow_array("select content from $dtab where name += '$name'"); $body =~ s/\r/\n/g;
I then print out the body...
open (OF, ">body.txt"); print OF $body; close (OF);
I have all the details for sending the message, but it arrives without newlines as one loong message.
$msg = MIME::Lite->new( From => $from, To => $to, Subject => $subject, Type => 'text/html', Data => qq{ $body } ); MIME::Lite->send('smtp', ', Timeout=>240); $msg->send();
I've tried most char substitions on $body such as:
s/\cM/\n/ s/\r\n/\n/
only s/\r/\n/ has any effect and only on the data written to the filehandle. Otherwise the body content is just one long string, no carriage returns! Strange one, perhaps the Monks can help?

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.
