Can you make an example, using this sample data (from HTML 4.2 spec)?

Content-Type: multipart/form-data; boundary=AaB03x

    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="submit-name"

    Content-Disposition: form-data; name="files"; filename="file1.txt"
    Content-Type: text/plain

    ... contents of file1.txt ...

Thanks  Manlio Perillo
