I started off  using fread, this seems to do exactly the same.
Even if I put the read / fread in a loop as below I still only get part of
the post.

TotalRead =0;
    Read = fread(ptmp,1,ContentLength,stdin);
    TotalRead +=Read;

I have now tried using Borland C++ Builder and get exactly  the same
results, so I don't think it's the VC+ libraries

Has anyone ever had the multipart mime stuff working on Win32? is there any
sample code ?? - please.

I have not recently looked through the win32 code for mod_cgi but am about
to, does the handing of multipart mime differ from that of a straight
post?. Is there a limitation on the file sizes which can be "posted" to a
WIN32 console application??
