I often get curl: (55) Send failure error message when uploading from named pipe #360
I usually want upload form named pipe, when transloading files from one filehost to another and I have only few disk space on my VPS to download files fully at first and then upload them.
On the producer side of the pipe:
On the consumer side:
What can I do to avoid such annoyances, and make the pipe / uploading intact?
curl's formpost logic doesn't support reading from a pipe but must be able to get the size before the transfer starts, afair. I could very well be fixed to support "Transfer-Encoding: Chunked" (if the server isn't HTTP1.0) but it isn't right now. Patches very welcome. Right now, this issue should be fixed by properly documenting this limitation.
