Update web page directly

Hi Josep,

You can't post to a URL just like that, thinking that you're going to  
upload the data. If you use the post url command, you need to use a  
URL that points to a CGI script that can handle the data.

Assuming you don't have such a CGI, you probably want to use FTP to  
upload the data. You'll need the following syntax:

put fld "f_web" into url "ftp://user:password@ftp.domain.com/file.xyz"

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
