This works from a Linux command line:
curl -X POST http://zurv3aqzm.iriscouch.com/zzz -d '{"xyz":"Hello World"}' -H "Content-Type: application/json"

How can I do the same thing using cURL for PHP?

<?php
// create new cURL resource

$ch = curl_init();

// set URL and other appropriate options
$options = array(CURLOPT_URL => 'http://www.example.com/',
                 CURLOPT_HEADER => false,
                 CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS => array('field1' => $someval, ...etc)
                );

curl_setopt_array($ch, $options);

// grab URL and pass it to the browser
curl_exec($ch);

// close cURL resource, and free up system resources
curl_close($ch);
?>
