Getting test fixture binary files stored in DB

Hi,

db_files is a table that contains binary data. I'm using postgresql
8.1 if it matters. I want to get some binary data into the fixtures
that gets loaded into the test database.

Here's my fixture:

<% require 'base64' %>
picture_original:
  id: 1
  data: <%=
Base64::encode64(File.read('/home/joe/gof21.jpg')).gsub("\n","").gsub(/\s+/,
'') %>

It works with no errors, but the data that gets put into the database
is corrupted. Any ideas?

Thanks,
Joe
