Just looking for some assistance from the community at large.


Currently trying to develop a small app using a simple form in HTML / PHP and will will need some assistance with cURL (whatever this is).

Here's the HTML:

<form action="receiving_parameters.php" method="post">
Name: <input type="text" name="name"><br>
<input type="text" name="action" type="hidden">action<br>
<input type="submit">

posting receiving_parameters.php (no problem here)

Here's where I'm lost:

I have to take the passed parameters I then have to take the parameters and using an API key, pass this info using cURL to a service (TROPO) to send a text message. I have no clue what cURL is and no idea how to pass these parameters using it either.

Any advice or help would be appreciated and might just include a 2fer of your favorite suds, FedEx'd next day.
