Consume a DIME attachment using SOAP and PHP?

Would someone please write a PHP version of SOAP that can do DIME attachments, and then write a tutorial explaining how that’s done? I need something like that asap! I don’t want to go to Microsoft’s .NET for this.

    N8, ironically I was writing just that!
    It’s called Taylor’s DIME enabled PHP w/ SOAP.
    I’ll let you know as soon as I’m done. ;)

    If only I thought you were serious. I wish you were. Thanks for the sympathy, but don’t be offended if I don’t hold my breath. :)

    So, are you trying to write a SOAP web service that can
    receive DIME attachments ?
    or you are trying to send a file with DIME attachment ?

    Thanks for the comment. I am trying to write a SOAP web service that can receive DIME attachments. But, both would be helpful.

    From what I’ve found in my recent search for this, so far NuSoap and PEAR::SOAP support attachments. I am unsure so far if this is MIME or DIME though.
