I can't figure out to send multiple restful messages to a server

Please assist.  I am a newbie.  I was able to get the sample restful_server and restful_client to work with the client successfully sending one message to the server.  Problem is that the application I am writing has to send multiple messages to the server. No matter what I do, I can only get to send successfully the first time and later requests are ignored.  Can someone please show me a sample that sends 3 or 4 messages to a server queued up ?   I really appreciate it.  I promise I have read all the documentation but can't really figure a way.  I have also extensively googled for sample codes but to no avail.

Thanks very much

Okay, found the solution.  Actually, I realized that I don't need to use mongoose to send out a url request.  I just went ahead and used the libcurl library to send the urls that the restful_server from mongoose is receiving.  Thanks guys!

Wow, flattered to be asked to post code :)

Actually it is such simple code that sends a url using the libcurl library.  I made a loop that cycles 5 times sending each time a different url that will be received by a restful server written using mongoose. (hopefully when I write the final code it will be sending like 50 urls per second)


#include <stdlib.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <curl/curl.h>

int sendCurl(char *msg1)
  CURL *curl;
  CURLcode res;


  curl = curl_easy_init();

  if(curl) {

     printf("sending='%s'\n", msg1);

     curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, msg1);
     res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

     if(res != CURLE_OK)
        printf("curl_easy_perform() failed: %s\n", curl_easy_strerror(res));




   return 0;

int main() {

        int y,c,x = 0;
        char *clientRequest[200];
char restfulServer[100];

        snprintf(restfulServer, REQLEN, "http://serverIP:port");

        while (1)
            c = 0;

            while (c != '\n')

            if (x++==5)

            snprintf(clientRequest, sizeof(clientRequest), "%s/n1?msg=bodyofmsgno%i", restfulServer, x);



        return 1;
