Thank you kind Sir, just the prod I needed, I've done it now.  FYI the
curl command to upload any file type allowed by PmWiki is:

curl -F n=Main.WikiSandbox -F action=postupload -F
uploadfile=@/c/times.txt http://localhost/pmwiki.php/Main/WikiSandbox

Obviously alter the wiki page name and file name to suit.  If you also
add -F upname=alternative-file-name.txt you can alter the filename
within PmWiki.

Great stuff :-)
