Thanks for the leads. I will have to look into it. It seems no matter how I look at it, I can see the need for a 'large library' to be hooked onto this.
What particularly worries me is that ripMIME is used across a multitude of platforms ( SGI, HPUX, AIX, Solaris, *BSD, Linux ... even Windows ) and thus being able to obtain such libraries on those various platforms would prove problematic no doubt.

Not a problem at all. It was written originally because I was trapped into a corner with no avilable options for the need-at-hand. Fortunately, I've found that a lot of commercial users of ripMIME give back quite a bit in terms of patches ( even though they're not obliged to ).
Soon I should start looking at what I'm going to do for ripMIME v1.3.x.x ( development for 1.4.x.x ). . . or perhaps v2.x.x.x However, if things work okay then perhaps I shouldn't put the energy into it ;-) I guess I'm wanting to get a nice clean rewrite of ripMIME, because right now a lot of the decoding routines are very -ugly- ( I tried objectifying everything, but eventually the number of exceptions to deal with exploits broke my interfaces in one way or another ). There's also a lot of redundant code in the whole lot.
Anyhow, I better stop rabbling. I've got to get out there and try sell some more Xamime... else it'll be back to the 9-5 job/boss thing for me *aaeeeeiii*.
