Description:
------------
According to the http_post_data documentation the second parameter is optional:
<code>
string http_post_data(string $url [, string $data [, array $options [, array &$info ]]])
</code>

However, when you try http_post_data('http://...'); this error is returned:
"expects at least 2 parameters, 1 given"

It would be great if the code were changed to match the documentation, in that there are times when POST-ing an empty body could be valid (requesting a "ticket" to later PUT to, etc).

Please consider the making the library match the documentation.

Thanks.

Please consider changing the "Report a problem" link on PECL extension documentation to point to the specific modules bug reporting section.

In this case: http://pecl.php.net/bugs/report.php?package=pecl_http

Thanks.
