The page in which the form is located is a frameset. Having a look at the
HTML of the frame in which the form is, reveals an 'onSubmit' action in the
form tag. It means that piece of javascript is run when the submit button is

You probably have to understand what the javascript function does and then do
that same operation manually with curl.
