If we replace this code:

> curl_easy_setopt ( pCURL, CURLOPT_POST, 1 );
> curl_easy_setopt ( pCURL, CURLOPT_READDATA, pFile );

by this:

char * pbuffer = new char[fileSize];
fread ( pbuffer, 1, fileSize, pFile );
curl_easy_setopt ( pCURL, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, pbuffer );

it works like before. Aren't these methods supposed to be equivalent?

kind regards,
