cURL and libcurl

This directory contains sources for the libcurl library, which optionally may be linked together with the WFDB library to allow applications to read annotated, digitized signals directly from web (HTTP) servers such as this one, and FTP servers, without the use of a web browser or FTP client.

Also included are sources for cURL, a command-line utility that uses libcurl to retrieve web pages non-interactively, much as can be done using wget. If you wish to download the contents of an entire directory with a single command, however, try wget.

cURL and libcurl are bundled with many operating systems; to see if it is already installed on your system, try running the command

     curl-config --version

The most recent set of sources, and binaries for many platforms including all of the popular ones, are always available at the cURL home page.
