Basically, this should work fine, but there are a couple of things
which may be typos in your email, or may be causing problems.

In Step 1, you post to saveSentence.irev, but in step 2, you say the
irev file is called SaveSentence.irev. Servers are usually
case-sensitive, so you need to make these 2 consistent.

In step 2, you have:
    ....  URL: "file:sentence.txt"
but the colon after URL is not correct.

For testing purposes, check "it" and "the result" after the "post"
command to see if there is any error or returned value.

In your irev file, have it write a log file showing all the $_POST
variables to check what is arriving.
