curl

Synopsis

    curl [options] [URL ...]

curl retrieves files from the Internet, most often using FTP or HTTP. It has a plethora of options, making it difficult to use easily. One of curl’s main strengths is that it may be used to automate file uploading. See also wget.

URLs: http://curl.haxx.se and ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/www/utilities/curl/.

Primary Options

For many of the options, using them multiple times toggles the behavior, turning a particular mode off if it was on or vice versa.

--connect-timeout seconds

Limit the connection phase to seconds seconds.

-Coffset, --continue-atoffset

Continue a previous file transfer at offset bytes. May be used with both downloads and uploads. Use -C - to have curl automatically determine the offset.
