Yes, it needs to be base 64 encoded, and "-n $post_url" is correct (with
the $). You might also have to check whether you're putting it in the
correct stack frame and context.

No, eval works exactly like eval() in PHP. eval("post_url") does not
work either for example. However, you should also base64 encode this.
