You might be able to get some ideas from the curl/docs/examples/hiperfifo.c
example - it just "listens" on a named pipe and requests a URL for each line
it reads. The example only works for systems that support named pipes, but
you should be able to adapt the demo to use whatever input you want.
(the ghiper.c example does the same thing, but uses glib-2 instead of
libevent .)

This will come to you in your CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION callback.
