BE_HTTP_POST

BE_HTTP_POST ( url ; parameters { ; username ; password } )

 

Does a http POST function and returns the results. This uses the curl library so output will be similar to that. This is used in conjunction with the BE_HTTP_Set_Custom_Header function to set custom headers in advance and the BE_HTTP_Response_Code and BE_HTTP_Response_Headers functions to get the result values after the POST is complete.
