Thanks PodMaster, that was it precisely. I rewrote the programs as follows:

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use MIME::Base64 qw( encode_base64 ); open INFILE, '<', $ARGV[0]; binmode INFILE; open OUTFILE, '>', $ARGV[1]; my $buf; while ( read( INFILE, $buf, 60 * 57 ) ) { print OUTFILE encode_base64( $buf ); } close OUTFILE; close INFILE; __END__

#! /usr/bin/perl use strict; use MIME::Base64 qw( decode_base64 ); open INFILE, '<', $ARGV[0]; open OUTFILE, '>', $ARGV[1]; binmode OUTFILE; my $buf; while ( $buf = <INFILE> ) { print OUTFILE decode_base64( $buf ); } close OUTFILE; close INFILE; __END__

The PDF decoded correctly this time. Thanks!

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
