Perl Win32::OLE WinHttp( cannot download binary

31 Mar

The default for this module is to download the response as Text.

You can change this on about line 421: where it says:

$body = $winhttp_obj->ResponseText();    # This does text only

change it to:

$body = $winhttp_obj->ResponseBody();   # To get binary

    Thanks a lot for this (and your other mshttps) hint.

    I’d been trying to work out why this wasn’t working for days before I stumbled upon this!
