Dear Jordan,

While MHD does not behave differently between PUT and POST, it is
possible that the HTTP client changes the encoding of the upload.
With CURL, I suspect --upload-file you get the file directly without
encoding, while with --form you get it in one of the encodings suitable
for MHD's post processor.

Thus, in this case, you might need to check what the HTTP headers say
about how the data was encoded and either use the MHD post processor
or process the file data directly from the upload_data field.

The fact that PUT/POST _could_ use the same content encodings does not
mean that clients are likely to do that ;-).

Happy hacking!
