CURL expert needed for complex headers

I want to create a CURL script to:

input some values, submit form, and listen for errors / confirmation on this site - [url removed, login to view]

The problem i'm having is that as far as i can see its not just straight forward POST data, it seems to initially POST some basic data, then the rest of the information is sent by storing information in cookies that are being read by the server. (please see attachment)

For instance the participant seems to be set in the IBSLEG= cookie variable

and the stake seems to be set in the IBSBET= cookie variable

I've attached a video of the action i want to mimic using CURL (link to video here, as its too large to attach to odesk, NOTE - you'll see it in much better detail if you download it first, rather than stream it - [url removed, login to view])

I would suggest you take a look at the site and the headers before bidding for the job, to do this you can set up a dummy account and try the actions as i show in the video, it will allow you to do this, and show you all the correct header data apart from the last stage it will return you an error in the headers - “SLIP_ERR_LOW_FUNDS” (which is indicating you don't have the funds, but everything else is the same this is just the last step).

You can use any CURL language binding you want during development, but for production it will be ported to php binding (dont worry if you cant personally do this, i can get someones else to port it to the php binding, but please indicate if you can)

If you have any queries please get in touch to discuss.

Please dont apply if you dont understand the requirements.

I will give you access to an account with funds while working on the project.
