Blank-in-attachment-filename bug? Semicolon bug?

1998-01-28 07:37:28
With MHonArc 2.1.0 I experience the following behaviour:

If an attachment filename contains blanks the generated link contains only the 
first part 
of the filename up to the (first) blank, f.i. in the example shown below only" 
occurs on the html-page. Since the whole filename is doublequoted I think it 
should be 
possible to detect where the filename actually ends. Is this a bug?
Example header:
Content-type: Application/Octet-stream; name="FSpec KIK Template.doc"; 
Content-disposition: attachment; filename="FSpec KIK Template.doc" 
Content-transfer-encoding: BASE64

Sometimes mail attachments sent with Eudora for Mac get a semicolon added to 
their name, 
so that f.i. in the example given below the name becomes "WP3.doc;". Could it 
be that 
somehow the semicolon at the start of the next header line slips into the 
Maybe this indicates the same bug (?) as above, namely that the quotes 
delimiting the 
file name are ignored. 
Example header:
 Content-Type: application/msword; name="WP3.doc"
 ; x-mac-type="5744424E"
 ; x-mac-creator="4D535744"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: x-uuencode
