Description:
------------
I am having a problem with posting data from one file to another. For some reason, the last few characters of my string variable keep getting dropped, so when it comes time to process the post, the data is not in tact.

xt_send.php

This file creates a variable and assigns the XML to the variable as string data. Then, I am opening up a connection on the same server to post the data in a variable called xml. I have also tried doing this in CURL. I am able to make successful requests on this machine all the time...this is the first time I've ever experienced this.

That's also a hint to you: use urlencode();

Problem solved.  In the php, you'll see that we are calculating the string length before appending the 'xml=' to the beginning of the string.  Hence, the reason it is truncated by 4 chars.
