   Hi Daniel,
    Thanks for your instant replies.
    I want to post a xml file so i am wondering if i can use
CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS becuase it requires data instead of a file name.
    I used curl_formadd that adds boundary tags so curl_formadd is out
of question.
    Later on i used
   but it failed to post the file andhttp method chaged to GET instead
of POST.
   Please, could you tell us how we can set appropriate option with
curl_easy_setopt to send a file ( by using http post method only).
