Extracting data

Hi all,

I am posting some xml data to the rails server using curl. Now how do I
extract the posted xml data from the http request? I saw that one can
the request parameters like params[:id] etc since params is a hash but I
not sure how the xml data can be extracted (any key to use?).

Pasted below is the console log of the server…
