Well spotted. I have added the fcloses. No difference though. I would
have been certain that was the problem if it weren't for the fact that I
get the end of the output, it's only a middle section missing. I have
just looked at what the output should be (by using a browser) and I
notice that part of the section returned contains a Japanese Yen sign.
Would this upset libcurl? Also, in the section which vanishes, there are
custom tags (ie not normal htmltags) such as <STATUS>. Would this be a
cause? As I mentioned before, command line curl returns all this without
a problem.
