Posting in binary data



I'm posting into a VisualForce Page a form which contains binary data. I am looking through the parameters returned and have seen these values:

RemoteFile:/home/sfdc/salesforce/sfdc/jsp/form/form1981773126.tmp RemoteFile.content-type:application/octet-stream RemoteFile.file:/home/sfdc/salesforce/sfdc/jsp/form/form1981773126.tmp RemoteFile.filename:7463.jpg

Does anybody know what the entries for RemoteFile and RemoteFile.file mean? (filename is the name of the file I posted.)

Has anybody tried to access these values before? I have tried to use the URL by copying and pasting into my browser but get the url no longer exists message.


Is there a way to directly access the request object then posted the data to the page?


Thanks for any help.



Did you ever end up solving this?


I want to upload a file using a pure HTML form not Visual force but instead of gettign the file data as a Blob I just get a reference to the file as:


/home/sfdc/salesforce/sfdc/jsp/form/form1433903752.tmp   is there any API call we can use to convert that into an blob or attachment


Guys, check this out. I doubt there's a way to get that blob, currently:
