gs.form 2.2.0

Functions for posting data to forms.

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.
