Authorize.net using PHP and curl

I needed a method to collect donations from patrons to the museum website that involved something a little less that what we offered before, PayPal. Not that I don't like the idea of PayPal, mind you, but it requires that the user create an account if they haven't got one, and that is a pain in the ass. So since I finished our OSC shopping cart for the Online Museum Store, we already had the mechanism in place. SSL certs, Authorize.net account, etc. Found a nice sample script at Zend.com that got me started. It was very simple, and I needed to get more from it. This is what I ended up with. First, a file called donate.php, that contains the form, and passes vars to the processing file, auth.php. Here are the files. Hope they help someone. JC
