Hello again:

I'm retrieving a text/xml document from a web server as
the result of a POST.  I'd like to pass that document as
it comes in to the various Expat functions in libwww.  I
can't figure out a way to do that.

HTPostFormAnchor writes the result to a temporary file.

HTPostFormAnchorToChunk writes it to an in-memory
buffer.

Shouldn't it be possible to insert the XML parser in the
stream pipeline for the result data?  That is possible
when doing a GET, but not a POST?

Thanks yet again,
--Sean
