Examples

<?php

    require 'path/to/wcurl/wcurl.php';


    // Basic GET request
    $response_body = wcurl('GET', 'https://api.github.com/gists/public');


    // GET request with query string parameters
    $response_body = wcurl('GET', 'https://api.github.com/gists/public', array('page'=>1, 'per_page'=>2));


    // Basic POST request
    // Parameters you want to skip can be passed as NULL. For example, here the query parameter is passed as NULL.
    $body = wcurl('POST', 'http://duckduckgo.com/', NULL, array('q'=>'42', 'format'=>'json'));


    // POST request with a custom request header (Content-Type) and an overriden cURL opt (CURLOPT_USERAGENT)
    // Also passing in a variable ($response_headers) to get back the response headers
    $response_headers = array();
    $response_body = wcurl
    (
        'POST',
        'https://api.github.com/gists',
        NULL,
        stripslashes(json_encode(array('description'=>'test gist', 'public'=>true, 'files'=>array('42.txt'=>array('content'=>'The Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything'))))),
        array('Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8'),
        $response_headers,  // This variable is filled with the response headers
        array(CURLOPT_USERAGENT=>'MY_APP_NAME')
    );
