I agree, it is easier to use urllib, but in this case I have to post
data in multipart/form-data which means MIME. I can build the proper
request and send it using httplib, but haven't been able to figure out
how to do this with urllib.
If I create the MIME data as 'data', and them post the request using
urllib.request(URL, data), it doesn't seem to post the form correctly.
If I do the same with httplib it works fine. Am I missing something?
Thanks for the help!
