Performs one or more XML-RPC request(s).


$url: An absolute URL of the XML-RPC endpoint. Example: http://www.example.com/xmlrpc.php

...: For one request: The method name followed by a variable number of arguments to the method. For multiple requests (system.multicall): An array of call arrays. Each call array follows the pattern of the single request: method name followed by the arguments to the method.

Return value

For one request: Either the return value of the method on success, or FALSE. If FALSE is returned, see xmlrpc_errno() and xmlrpc_error_msg(). For multiple requests: An array of results. Each result will either be the result returned by the method called, or an xmlrpc_error object if the call failed. See xmlrpc_error().
