It is a "ZPublisher.HTTPRequest.FileUpload" object.

    File upload objects are used to represent file-uploaded data.

    File upload objects can be used just like files.

    In addition, they have a 'headers' attribute that is a dictionary
    containing the file-upload headers, and a 'filename' attribute
    containing the name of the uploaded file.

You should not rely on the fact that the data is stored somewhere
on the server.

"REQUEST.form['attached_file']" should be a "FileUpload" object
and as such have a "read" method (beside many others).

Thus, "REQUEST.form['attached_file'].read()" should return the
file content.

In an earlier message, you said, it did not.
