Subject: Re: GIF - straight to the browser

This is no problem. The correct way is to place a blank line between the 
content type and the image content. The blank line is a break between the 
header and body sections of the data stream sent to the browser. For 
example, you can send cookie information in the header section allong 
with the content-type (mime header).
I have implemented a C routine using CT-lib which reads GIF/JPEG images 
stored in the database and returns them from a CGI. My main HTML file 
looks like this:

The display.cgi is exectued using primary key 1234 to retireve an image 
from the database then send the mime-header (which is also in the 
database) followed by a blank-line then the image content as a bit stream.
