Re: [xml] crash in charactersSAXFunc

 My program uses the SAX interface to parse an encoded image, lets say

returns a string with all the character between tags, and I want to use 
it to reconstruct the original image. If the string
is too long (apparently len = 1000), my program crashes. 
 Can anybody tell me what's wrong? How can I overcome this?

An XML parser isn't guaranteed to return the entire contents of a tag in a
characters callback. It is free to break on every byte, or newlines, or
entities, or...

So your application is most likely expecting all the base64 string, but
only getting part of it. Use a buffer to bundle it all together, and
process the string in the call to end_element.
