Hi Timo

I try to tunnel a binary through a cgi.
CGI get binary and print this out.
F.e. a gif is downloaded by my cgi and is printed out to stdout.
This function very good with Internet Explorer 5, but not with Netscape
Navigator (<url to cgi>?<url to image>).
It's only function, when the image is implemented in html (img src = "<url
to cgi>?<url to image>").
I want to extend my cgi to read all data and put them out to stdout for
downloading stuff via the cgi.

I recognize that the header is wrong.
All output with "content..." (cout << "Content-type = image/gif" << endl <<
endl) were put into the body 
not into the header and appear into the browser window, the picture will not
be displayed anymore. 
How can I edit the header without editing the body?

I use SUN Workshop 4.2 with RogueWave Libs and of course libwww,
Netscape Enterprise Server 3.51 on a Sun Sparc20 with Solaris 2.6.

Hi Michael!

I have big problems to understand your problem! Do you try to request
binaries from an origin server, load this into memeory and then do anything
with this stuff ??? This is no problem with LIBWWW and I think I can help
you doing this ??? But perhaps you explain it again ....
