    Writing a Binary file

    rgurganus Level 1
      I'm trying to use CF 7 to write a binary (GIF) file either to the browser or to a file on the server. I have tried many variations - CFFile, CFHeader/CFContent - but all return the same result of returning only the Hex codes, not binary, even though the output is converted to binary before saving. Then the browser returns the error "The image cannot be displayed, because it contains errors", as it's not binary. The only method I have found to work is using a CFX tag HexBinaryW, but this isn't installed at shared hosting sites, and I would rather stick to CFML or at least a standard CFX that hosts would likely have already. Is there something missing in my code, or are there alternatives?
