RE: Request is getting truncated by my WAS App server

Really old, curl-7.9.2 I am attempting to go to the new version
7.13.2. So the option for the BUFFER upload is not available. I saw
that you added the feature in 2002, so I needed to go up to the next

We are running AIX, I downloaded the binary version and it would not
link because it was looking for some gcc lib, glib, some kind of float
method was missing. I don't have access to gcc on this system because
they want to keep everything AIX'ish. So I downloaded the source,
ftp.c and hostip6.c would not compile. I don't need ftp so I commented
the offending code out, but I do need the hostip6.c AI_NUMERICHOST to
look up hard coded IP addresses so I could not fake that one out. I am
trying to figure out why this is missing on my AIX OS version.

 cc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I../include -I../lib -I../lib -g -qthreaded -c -M
hostip6.c -DPIC -o .libs/hostip6.o
"hostip6.c", line 249.16: 1506-045 (S) Undeclared identifier
make: 1254-004 The error code from the last command is 1.

What libcurl version on what OS?

What happens when it stops? What does curl_easy_perform() return then?

Whoa, if you fetch the return code (and CURLOPT_ERRORMESSAGE) it might
actually tell you more about the problem.

The code looks fine to me otherwise.

POST data should not be and is not in the header in case, POST data is
in the
request-body. The above snippet will put the data in the request-body,
and so
will curl_formadd() and CURLOPT_HTTPPOST, but formadd makes multipart
formposts, which your current code does not.
