Introduction

This product contains the core functions and classes for making HTTP POST requests to send data to forms. For the most part it consists of the post_multipart utility, for posting data to a form.

While originally written for GroupServer, there is nothing specific to GroupServer in this product.

post_multipart

The gs.form.post_multipart function is used to post data to a form:

post_multipart(host, selector, fields, files=[], usessl=False)

See the documentation for more on how to use this function.

Acknowledgements

The post_multipart code was based on a Python recipe by Wade Leftwich. It was changed to use email.multipart to create the multipart document that is sent using a POST.

The Python standard library currently lacks a module for making a POST to a Web server. Issue 3244 tracks the inclusion of a module into the standard library.
