RE: Need assistance - XML to URL from UNIX

Here's what finally worked.

I removed the entire header part of the XML file - so the file now
begins simply with:

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

Using the curl syntax I had on the orginal request on this issue and
voila, it works great. Thanks for the help all!

To me, it sounds like you need to URL-encode your file first before you
it, as curl does not do that.

(Which reminds me of Kevin's --data-encode suggestion... see
