So I just started trying to use XML-RPC with LJ today, and this also will be my first time using sockets. My website is PHP based. Anyways, I coded this crappy little attempt to post a message but it doesn't work (which I expected). Could someone help me get started? Here is what I came up with:

$xmlrpc_message = "[?xml version='1.0'?]\n
[value][string]This is a test post.\n


$socket = socket_create(AF_INET, SOCK_STREAM, SOL_TCP);
if (socket_connect($socket, "", 80)) echo "Socket connected?[BR]";

$len = strlen($xmlrpc_message);
$reply = socket_send($socket, $xmlrpc_message, $len, 0x100);
echo $reply;


All the ['s are of course greater and less than signs in the real code. What are some of the many problems with this attempt? Thank you.

It would be great if you could replace all of your <'s and >'s with &lt; and &gt; respectively. :)
