Issue in Curl to send http POST request with attachment/multipart


I am using curl to hit a url using http in solaris 10 using commandline, I want to transfer an attachment(using multipart curl -F) also as a part of the request. If anyone has used kindly help me with the syntax. I am using below command:


/usr/local/bin/curl -v -A "Jakarta Commons-HttpClient/3.0" --header "Accept: text/xml" -H "Content-Type: multipart/related; type=text/xml" -f "file=mm.xml"
When I use below, I get succesful result but with above command I get "Root element is missing", as I need to send multipart content(i.e. an attachment as well) so I want to use -F option, also let me know how to send attachment also.

/usr/local/bin/curl -v -A "Jakarta Commons-HttpClient/3.0"
--header "Accept: text/xml" -H "Content-Type: multipart/related; type=text/xml" -d "@mm.xml"
