in thread LWP::Useragent - File Upload

As I spent hours to make it finally work, here my working solution:
my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new(); my $url = "http://your_url"; my $filename = "d:\\clips\\videoclip.mp4"; my $response = $ua->post($url, ['file' => [ $filename ]], 'Content_Type' => 'form-data' # add here more header paramete +rs if necessary );

    And if you switch to single quotes, you can replace the double backslashes by single ones:
    my $filename = 'd:\clips\videoclip.mp4';
    map{substr$_->[0],$_->[1]||0,1}[\*||{},3],[[]],[ref qr-1,-,-1],[{}],[sub{}^*ARGV,3]

      And I wonder whether backslashes are even necessary there. For most purposes (i.e. virtually everything outside of the brain-dead cmd "shells") forward slashes work just fine.
