How to use Curl

Last update in 11/2019

Curl (Client URL) is command line tool used for transferring data using protocols like http, ftp or smtp. I mostly use it for quick testing of APIs. Curl has a lot of options but I'll go through most used ones.

Curl is probably already installed on your system. Check it by running:

curl --version

If this command doesn't return version, install it from its download page.

HTTP #

General #
