I have had to resort to praying to the EPrints angel, for the answer to
this one. We are trying to write a simple PHP cURL wrapper for the eprints
functionality/API in CRUD.pm.
We have got so far, but are not able to add documents. We have tried
several approaches including adding a complete EP xml object, with files
embedded and have tried to add only the <documents> sub object to a
pre-existing eprint, using cURL.
Nothing seems to work, and I don't know what is wrong. Our latest attempt
is to add the files as a POST attachment.
curl -X POST -i -u dkane:maggots22 -d 'Hello, World!' -H
'Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=/var/www/test.xml' -H
'Content-Type: text/plain' http://witeprints/id/eprint/26/contents
A lot of this is documented in
We are out of luck at the moment. Could it be a bug? If somebody else
could try this CURL command, we'd be much obliged. We are working on
