I'm new to sending, receiving, and reading XML. I'm trying to send and receive XML data via cURL. I am using curl because it was so easy with just arrays. I am using the following code to generate the XML and the PHP script that is presently not working. It would be great if some great code god can explain whats wrong to me.

build_xml.php


<?php
'<?xml version="1.0"?>'
$xml = "<member><name>name</name></member>";
echo $xml;
?>


Array Method - Works great with arrays. I tried with XML as $data, and it no work. Getting it working this way is preferred.


<?php
exec("/usr/bin/curl -m 120 -d \"$xml\" http://www.example.com/index.php -L", $response);
// $response is null
?>


Alternate Method - This way is failing also.


<?php
$url = "build_xml.php";
$ch = curl_init(); // initialize curl handle
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL,$url); // set url to post to
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER,1); // return into a variable
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 4); // times out after 4s
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $XPost); // add POST fields
$result = curl_exec($ch); // run the whole process
echo $result; //contains response from server
// NO RESPONSE RECEIVED
?>
