Sending various HTTP request kinds using curl

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/07/25

I’ve been using cURL but always had a feeling not to its potential basically because the cURL man page [WayBack] is both massive and lacks concrete useful practical examples.

For instance, I knew about the --header and --verbose options (I always use verbose names even though shorter -H and -v exist) to pass a specific header and get verbose output, but the man page basic examples like this by Tader:

curl --header --verbose "X-MyHeader: 123" http://www.google.com

source: How to send a header using a HTTP request through a curl call? – Stack Overflow [WayBack]

There are some more examples at bropages.org/curl but they’re hardly organised or documented.

So I was really glad I found the below answer [WayBack] by Amith Koujalgi to web services – HTTP POST and GET using cURL in Linux – Stack Overflow.

But first note that recent versions (around 7.22 or higher) of cURL now need to combine the --silent and --show-error (or in short -sS) parameters to suppress progress but show errors: linux – How do I get cURL to not show the progress bar? – Stack Overflow [WayBack]

Back to the examples
