Half of it - although I had originally replaced it.

I'm trying to create a HTTP heading to send a tweet to my account
(using GLBasic).  Unfortunately the API documentation is no help in
how this should be defined or what exactly to send.

>From the scraps of a C# demo, I've got :

   send$ = "POST "+curl$+" HTTP/1.0\r\n"
   INC send$, "Authorization: Basic username:password\r\n"
   INC send$, "status:"+postdata$+"\r\n"
   INC send$, "Content-Length: "+LEN(postdata$) + "\r\n"
   INC send$, "\r\n"
   INC send$, postdata$

With <user> and <password> being my account and password.

curl$ is the URL that being used to send the data (/1/statuses/
update.xml), and the HTML address is api.twitter.com

postdata$ contains the contents of the tweet...

Unfortunately, all I get back at the moment is :

REsult : <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//
EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd";>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"; lang="en" xml:lang="en">
more stuff here

I presume oAuth needs to be used.  How do you go about creating a
header-based auth ? Preferably in C
