Posting HTTP Message via a file through --data-ascii

Hi all,

I need to post a chunk of data i.e a HTTP message content across. Using
--data-ascii I am able to do that by pasting the chunk of data.
However if I needed to do the same by having the chunk of data in a text
file, how would I be able to do that ?

e.g --data-ascii="<xml-root><sometag>55</sometag></xmlroot>" // This

e.g --data-ascii= ?? Can I specify a way to indicate where to pick the
content from ?

Any help appreciate
