Hi Kevin!

I think I understand your problem (-;
I think there is no complete function in LIBWWW that match on you problem
or I do not know this function, but there is always a way.
Please have a look to the souce code of the HTAccess module (HTAccess.c).
There you will find the source of the "HTPostFormAnchorToChunk" function.
This function calls the "HTPostFormAnchor" function. In this function you
can see, what has to be done for a post. There you can modify the parameter
of "HTAnchor_setDocument(postanchor, form_encoded);" and
"HTAnchor_setFormat(postanchor, WWW_FORM);" functions to your demands.

Hope this will help you ?!

Thanks again for the hint. From the documentation,
HTPostFormAnchorToChunk() indeed can be used to post
arbitrary data.

I still have couple of questions, here's an sample
XmlRpc request that I'm trying to send:

         User-Agent: MyApp
         Host: myhost.domain.com
         Content-Type: text/xml
         Content-length: 181

         <?xml version="1.0"?>


   * how do I set "Content-Type" to "text/xml" for the
     request? I've tried to set it with
     HTRequest_setConversion() on the request and
     HTAnchor_setFormat() on the anchor but to no
     avail; the form removes all request header and
     latter doesn't seem to do anything, content-type
     stays as "application/x-www-form-urlencoded".

   * HTPostFormAnchorToChunk() expects data in an
     associated list, I have request payload as single
     string, so I need to convert it to a
     association/pair; should I store the payload as
     value and empty or some dummy string as name in
     the pair?

Thanks in advance.
