Yes. That's because you haven't set 'CURLOPT_UPLOAD' to TRUE.

Also, I'm not entirely sure what will happen when you don't specify a file
name in the URL. I can't see how that will do what you want. I suspect you
may get some unexpected results.

If you get your little snippet working, would you mind submitting it to make
a documented example of how to make an upload with libcurl? I just realized
there's none in the docs/examples directory.
