Hi Worik!

I also study the sample of postform.c. But there is an essential difference
between postform.c and post.c:

In postform.c you can post data like an HTML form tag, using
What I want to do is to post the whole data stream to a http server.
to HTPostFormAnchorToChunk(), I looked for a function like

I wrote my version of HTPostAnchorToChunk().  But I am in testing to see I
get the result back
correcly from my server.

PUBLIC HTChunk * HTPostAnchorToChunk (HTParentAnchor *	source,
			 HTAnchor *		destination,
			 HTRequest *	 	request)
    if (source && destination && request) {
	HTChunk * chunk = NULL;
	HTStream * target = HTStreamToChunk(request, &chunk, 0);
	HTRequest_setOutputStream(request, target);
	if (HTPostAnchor(source, destination, request) != NULL)
	    return chunk;
	else {
	    return NULL;
    return NULL;
