Subject FieldStorage and multiline headers in multipart/form.
Date Thu, 06 Apr 2006 06:22:31 GMT
With FieldStorage being discussed on main user mailing list, came across
this old post of the mailing list:

  http://www.modpython.org/pipermail/mod_python/2001-November/012256.html

What it is saying is that some HTTP clients use multi line headers in sections
of multipart/form postings and that mod_python doesn't handle this.

Looking at FieldStorage code, which I don't grok right at this minute
because of an intensive coding frenzy today on the back of not enough
sleep last night, I can't see that it has ever been modified to accomodate
such multiline headers if indeed it needs to.

Anyone who is more intimate with FieldStorage code want to have a
better look at validity of original mailing list post and whether multiline
headers are legitimate and whether there indeed could be a problem in
mod_python.

Graham
