List all command-line options
curl has more than two hundred command-line options and the number of options keep increasing over time. Chances are the number of options will reach 250 within a few years.
In order to find out which options you need to perform as certain action, you
can, of course, list all options, scan through the list and pick the one you

curl --help or simply
curl -h will get you a list of all
existing options with a brief explanation. If you don't really know what
you are looking for, you probably won't be entirely satisfied.

curl --manual which will output the
entire man page for curl plus an appended tutorial for the most common use

masses. Some people will appreciate the man page in its web
