[Edinburgh-pm] WWW::Curl::Easy

Hi All,

Does anyone have any experience with WWW::Curl:Easy?

I'm needing to convert some code that currently uses HTTP::Request and
LWP::UserAgent into WWW::Curl::Easy code.
I've got most of it working, there just one case that is not.

I need to send content along with this particular query.
Here is what I need to convert to WWW::Mechanize:

---------------------- CODE ----------------------

    my $req = new HTTP::Request POST => $url;
    $req->header("Authorization", "Basic ".$self->{'config'}->{'creds_64'});
    $req->header("Cookie", $self->{'config'}{'seller_cookies'});
    $req->header("FileFormat", "TabDelimited");
    $req->header("BatchID", "Y");


    my $response = $self->{'ua'}->request($req);

---------------------- /CODE ----------------------

That code works perfectly fine.

This is what I have so far for WWW::Curl::Easy:

---------------------- CODE ----------------------

    my @headers = ('Content-Type: text/xml',
                'Authorization: Basic
                'Cookie: '.$self->{'config'}{'seller_cookies'},
                'FileFormat: TabDelimited',
                'BatchID: Y'

    $self->{'curl'} = new WWW::Curl::Easy;

    $self->{'curl'}->setopt(CURLOPT_POST, 1);
    $self->{'curl'}->setopt(CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $content);
    $self->{'curl'}->setopt(CURLOPT_URL, $url);

    open (my $response_handle, ">", \$response_body);
    my $retcode = $self->{'curl'}->perform;

---------------------- /CODE ----------------------

But I'm getting a message back saying that it's not seeing the added
$content properly/at all.

I'm very new to WWW::Curl::Easy and so could use any help.
As I said before, I have standard page curls working perfectly fine,
including ones where I send the extra header information.
It's just when I try to send extra $content.

I think this content might need to be sent as an attachment somehow....

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help me out.
