    can anyone help to correct my script to Post multipart/form-data

    Thanks.

    $srand = substr(md5(rand(0,32000)),0,10);
    $aform =      "----$srand\r\n";
    
    $submitdata = $aform;
    $submitdata .= "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"title\"\r\n\r\n";
    $submitdata .= "$title";
    $submitdata .= "\r\n".$aform;
    $submitdata .= "Content-Disposition: form-data; name=\"bodytext\"\r\n\r\n";
    $submitdata .= "$body";
    $submitdata .= "\r\n"."----$srand"."--\r\n";
    
    $postdata = $submitdata;
    $posturl = "http://test.com/submit.php";
     $ch = curl_init($posturl);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CUSTOMREQUEST, "Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=--$srand");
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST      ,1);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS    ,$postdata);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, $timeout);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION  ,0);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIE,  $mycookies);
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HEADER      ,1);  // DO NOT RETURN HTTP HEADERS
     curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER  ,1);  // RETURN THE CONTENTS OF THE CALL
     $return = curl_exec($ch);
     curl_close($ch);

    Got it. Just pass postfields as an array.

    I've been searching the whole freaking internet on how to emulate multipart/form-data posting with Curl... and nothing. Finally, found this - a dead solo-post that, apparently, solved all problems. Thanks.

    unfortunately it didn't solve it for me, is all the code above necessary to do a multipart/form-data post (but not posting a file)? i've gone over and over my code but it won't post the form-data at all.
