CURL and PHP Redirect

Hi All,

I have a small curl function which spits out a bunch of headers.

The CURL Code is:

$url="http://blahblah.com?Lo gon";
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_FOLLOWL OCATION, 1);
curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_RETURNT RANSFER, 1);
curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_REFERER ,
"http://blahblah.com/default.asp?v=" );
curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_VERBOSE , 0);
curl_setopt($ch , CURLOPT_HEADER, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1);
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIE LDS,
"FormId=0&Confi g=0&RedirectURL =$RedirectURL&I dentification=$ UserID&Verifica tion=$Password& DB=$DB&Remember Logon=1&UseEnha ncedContent=1") ;
curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_COOKIEJ AR, 'Ocookie.txt');
$content = curl_exec ($ch); # This returns HTML
curl_close ($ch);
print $content;
The HTML sspit out by the above code is:

HTTP/1.1 100 Continue Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.1 Date: Fri, 17 Mar 2006
00:14:25 GMT X-Powered-By: ASP.NET HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server:
Microsoft-IIS/5.1 Date: Fri, 17 Mar 2006 00:14:25 GMT X-Powered-By:
ASP.NET Connection: close Content-Type: text/html Refresh: 0;
URL=http://blahblah.com/default.asp?v= Set-Cookie: osaa=guest;
expires=Monday, 16-Mar-2009 00:14:25 GMT; path=/ Set-Cookie:
osab=guest; expires=Monday, 16-Mar-2009 00:14:25 GMT; path=/

All this is printed along with the existing HTML on which the above
curl code is written. How do I redirect the existing page to the one
setup in the headers by making sure of passing the whole header
information which is spit out by the curl code?

The result of print_r(curl_ge tinfo($ch)); is as follows:

Array ( [url] => http://localhost/abc/default.asp?xyz = [http_code] => 0

Obviously, you're using print_r(curl_ge tinfo($ch)); before
curl_exec(). Use it immediately after curl_exec()

Sorry, My Bad..

Here's the complete output:

The Local System Performace signifies that my curl code is pulling
stuff out a website running on local system.

The Remote System Performace signifies that my curl code is pulling
stuff out a website running on a remote system.

The remote system performance is faster.. eventhough i tweaked a lot of
curl, i am still unable to figure out why it is so slow on the local
machine.. :(

IIRC, libcurl on Windows machine will be little slower as compared
to Linux; not sure though.
