Timo,

Thank you very much for your help.

Yes, I can also post form data and get reply in
one chunk; when I post XmlRpc request the
reply data in still empty, I don't know why
yet. But even with form data, I can only get the
reply chunk asynchronously, i.e. in request
terminate handler, not right after the function
call completes even the "chunk" is already
returned from the call(is that the case for you
too?). It looks to me it's not possible to get
synchronous post with libwww (I'll love to be
corrected on this).

Posting request and getting the result is part of
a small library I'm working on, that this
operation must be one synchronous call. It's
probably not easy achieve this with libwww without
creating multiple threads (again let me know if
I'm wrong), I'm afraid I have to use sockets to
talk to http port directly ;-<

Thanks again.

Kevin
