cURL Command Line Tool

cURL (curl) is an absolutely essential library and command line tool. Most Internet applications use within their core code base. But you will likely just use it from the command line to fetch files from the Internet and test your Web APIs.

Entire Web sites on the web have been made to only use curl. Try curl wttr.in, for example.

Or you can do something like this:

howin () { 
  where="$1";
  shift;
  IFS=+ curl "http://cht.sh/$where/ $*"
}

There a ton more.
