Please be more specific. What examples are you working from? Do you get
an error? Can you give us verbose output? Enable verbosity, also show
the libcurl version your program is using:

printf("\n\n\nYou are using libcurl/%s\n\n\n",
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1L);

There is a simple POST example in docs/examples/http-post.c [1].
