There is a vanishingly small chance that the data contain ']]>'. In fact, this could be an issue, but I have only been working here for two days and I am sure that the first answer I get will be that it is so unlikely that it is considered impossible. But this data has a high sorrow factor if it is not handled correctly, so I will eventually bring that up.

I think that base 64 encoding is out of the question as it would be too slow.

In practical terms, getting the binary data wrapped in '<![CDATA...]>' is probably the best option. Maybe for now, I can do that myself in preprocessing and get some traction on parsing these that way.

Thank you.

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.
