#53 File transfer using yahoo protocol v15

Yahoo (7)

I downloaded the ayttm and found out that I cannot
send file using libyahoo2.

So I studied the source code, seems like the way ayttm
implemented does not work with libyahoo2.

What happened is:
eb_yahoo_got_fd is called inside of the function
_yahoo_send_file_connected() in libyahoo2.
However, after the callback function (eb_yahoo_got_fd)
is called, _yahoo_send_file_connected() will call
yahoo_input_close() to close the file handler. So you
will never be able to use that file handler to send

Anyway, so I tried to do a test to see whether sending
file really works in libyahoo2. What I did is to
write all the content inside the eb_yahoo_got_fd, but
still failed though I successfully wrote all the file
content to the file handler.

Later on, I downloaded gaim and it works for sending
files through yahoo. So I study the ayttm source code
again and did some modification to make sure the
packets sent out are exactly same as what gaim sends
out. However still no luck to make it work. At this
time I have not idea now.

Here is a brief description of what I did for the testing:
1. Connect to server
2. Write http post
3. Write yahoo packet
4. Write whole file content.

For step 2,3,4 the data I write is exactly same as gaim
except the session id and cookie, but it just does not

    File sending is fixed with the version 12 protocol. We still do not support file transfer using the version 15 protocol. Moving this to feature request now for version 15 protocol file transfer.
