replacing curl with urlfetch in php using -'php,google-app-engine,curl,urlfetch'


replacing curl with urlfetch in php  using -'php,google-app-engine,curl,urlfetch'

I'm creating an application for Google App engine, where CURL isn't allowed.
As far as I know, urlFetch is the best alternative.

I don't know if I can achieve the same result with urlFetch, but I would really, really appreciate it if anyone with more experience could help me out.

The plan was to convert the following CURL requests to urlFetch. If anyone can point me in the right direction, or propose a better alternative, I'd greatly appreciate it.

public function postCall($endpoint, $post_data, $param1, $param2, $json=1, $headers=false) {
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_URL, $this->options['url'].$endpoint);
curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, 1);

if ($headers && is_array($headers)) {
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, $headers);
}

$post_data['req_token'] = $this->hash($param1, $param2);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, count($post_data));
if (!$headers)
    curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, http_build_query($post_data));
else
    curl_setopt($ch,CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, $post_data);
$this->debug('POST params: ' . json_encode($post_data));
$result = curl_exec($ch);
if ($result === false) {
    $this->debug('CURL error: '.curl_error($ch));
    return false;
}
$this->debug('HTTP response code' . curl_getinfo($ch, CURLINFO_HTTP_CODE));
$this->debug('POST return ' . $result);

// close connection
curl_close($ch);

if ($json)
    return json_decode(utf8_encode($result), true);
else
    return $result;}
