RE: Request is getting truncated by my WAS App server

Sorry, hit send to early...
The return code was good when I ran it before, I cut out the error
logic to make the example easier to follow. I did however get a message
to large error from my WAS server. When I hit my PC WSAD app server it
just truncates with no error message. I really don't want a multi part
form because I just want to send an xml request to the server. And yes
you are right, what I think is happening is that the entire request is
getting sent in the header, nothing is appearing inside the request
body. From my monitor the request looks like a get request
It comes in on one long line and does not appear inside the request
body. When I send a sample request via an HTML form it works just fine
and the XML data is in the body. Sorry to be confusing before...

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