Description phostetl 2001-01-30 01:49:47 UTC
I have a form that sets var to some filename and calls the following php
code.  I use it to force headers so that a file download occurs without
revealing the path.  This worked until  php-4.0.4pl1-3.  I have the php.ini
set to enable multiple header transmission.

header ("Location: /downloads/$var");
The problem is that a bunch of blank lines now preceed the header.

I also force headers for uploads. My upload function still works.

Comment 1 phostetl 2001-01-30 03:43:28 UTC
It turn out that $var from my form somehow picked up additional whitespace.  I
corrected the problem with:

header ("Location: $qnx");

But this shouldn't have happened.  There isn't anything regarding this in the
release notes.

Bug #24933 strikes again.  The form-parsing code is pretty involved; I'm still
tracing through it to try figuring out where things go awry, but I can guess
that it works in Netscape Navigator....
