simpleJSON pack binary data


I donno if this is the right place to ask for this question, anyway....

Is it possible to pack binary data into simplejson?

d['date'] = xxxxxx
d['name'] = xxxxxx
d['size'] = xxxxx

d['imageBinaryDat aJpeg'] = jpegBinaryDataF romcStringIOStr ingIO

simplejson.dump s(d)

when i do this, it raises a UTF8 decode error, probably about the binary
image data

My question is, anyone will suggest a workaround to this error?
i really like to pack my raw image data into the JSON, so my other
programming script can read the array easily

JSON is a text format so you have to encode the binary data somehow. I'd
use base64. It's available as codec for `str.encode()`/`str.decode()`.

In [10]: '\x00\xff\xaa'
Out[10]: '\x00\xff\xaa'

In [11]: '\x00\xff\xaa'. encode('base64' )
Out[11]: 'AP+q\n'

In [12]: _.decode('base6 4')
Out[12]: '\x00\xff\xaa'

I'm attempting to use spamassassin 3.0 (beta) with an SQL backend, and have identified one performance gain so far that makes PostgreSQL a good (IMO) candidate for the backend.

Hi guys, I need to manipulate binary data (8 bit) stored in a 2 dimensional array. I've tried various methods (arrays, using a string filled with chr(0), using gd lib) and so far the fastest way I've found is to actually create an 8-bit image in GD and use imagecolorat and imagesetpixel to read and write the data.
