In case of upload the request for validation is sent to the CGI via a  
POST request, so adding options is indeed not as easy as just adding  
them at the end of the request URI.

Since you have a local installation of the CGI, the easiest way is to  
customize the form. Replace htdocs/detailed-form.html in your  
installation with this file, and the "detailed" interface, including  
for file upload, should give you a choice of output formats. That's  
just a quick hack, but it should work.

Hope this helps.

Note that the EARL output has not been changed or checked in a while,  
so depending on which version of the validator you are running, the  
EARL output may be outdated, or plain broken. Please tell us how and  
whether it worked.
