1. You don't want "-XPOST" when you use -d or a --data* flag. Remove it.

2. "--data-binary @"data/input.dump" is reading the file into a buffer and
uses CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS to send it as a POST.

This would make it use the read callback (or stdin) instead to get the data,
which you of course can opt to do.
