In this exercise, the goal is to send a POST request to /pentesterlab with the body containing the XML: `please`. You are encouraged to start with the curl command to understand the request structure and then create a script in your preferred programming language. This approach will help you build a collection of reusable scripts for future challenges.

The video provides a detailed walkthrough of using curl to send the XML data. It demonstrates how to send the request directly via the command line and also by using a data.xml file. The video highlights that even though the Content-Type is set to application/x-www-form-urlencoded, it still works for this challenge. This hands-on practice will solidify your understanding of crafting and sending HTTP requests with different tools.
