If that's true, you don't need curl--you can do it with netcat. But chances
are you don't want to send raw data over a socket, you want to send an HTTP
POST request, or PUT or something similar, with a specific MIME type.
Once you figure out what kind of request you want, then you can figure out
how to do it in libcurl. The chances are high that you'll need the
CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS option, though.
