Everything curl is an extensive guide to everything there is to know about curl, the project, the command-line tool, the library, how everything started and how it came to be what it is today. It covers how we work on developing it further, what it takes to use it, how you can contribute with code and bug reports and why all those millions of existing users use it. cURL is a project and its primary purpose and focus is to make two products: curl, the command-line tool and libcurl the transfer library with a C API. Both the tool and the library do Internet transfers for resources specified as URLs using Internet protocols. Both products are frequently used not only to drive thousands or millions of scripts and applications for an Internet connected world, but they are also widely used for server testing, protocol fiddling and trying out new things. The library is used in every imaginable sort of embedded device where Internet transfers are needed: car infotainment, televisions, video players, set-top boxes, printers, routers, game systems, etc. by some of the biggest names in technology.
