 * The imaginary form we'll fill in looks like:

 * <form method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" action="examplepost.cgi">
 * Enter file: <input type="file" name="sendfile" size="40">
 * Enter file name: <input type="text" name="filename" size="30">
 * <input type="submit" value="send" name="submit">
 * </form>
