Hello PHP Friends

I am attempting to use libcurl in my PHP scripts (under linux) to
communicate with a web server (basically to fake user input).  I have
everything working (logon, authentication cookies, etc) but am stuck
because the site uses MultiPowUpload to upload local files.
MultiPowUpload is a flash-based object for browsing and selecting
multiple files to upload.

I have downloaded a 30-day trial version of MultiPowUpload and installed
on my local server (linux/Apache), but still can't figure out how to
fool it (or even if it is possible).

Does anyone have experience with using the cURL with PHP to fool the
server site into thinking I selected a file (I only need to upload one
file at a time) using their MultiPowUpload object?  I am familiar with
how to use cURL to upload a file where the site uses a "normal" file
upload mechanism.

How does MultiPowUpload send the file list to the server? It uses
standard server-side scripts, so it's just going to be an HTTP request.
  Have you examined the sample code?

Finally, did you try asking MultiPowUpload?
