RE: _curlrc on Win32

OK. I got this to work by setting a HOME environment variable.
I think it would be a good idea to look for a config file in the same
directory that the curl.exe is running from if an environment variable is
not set, (win32 only of course). I'm not much of a C coder or I would give
it a shot. So I guess you could consider this a feature request. :)

I see on the TODO list that you would like to support NTLM proxy's. I have
the exact same problem (hence the question below) and I have found that the
"NTLM Authorization Proxy Server"
fits the bill quite well for me.

Thanks to everyone involved in making this great program.

Subject: _curlrc on Win32


I'm trying to use the config file on a Win2K machine (I'm behind a proxy and
I want to default the '-x' option)

I see it mentioned in the docs that win32 users should use the _curlrc file
as opposed to the .curlrc file. Where should this file live? I've tried
the same directory as the binary, the current directory, and the 'My
Documents' directory with no joy.

Can someone tell me where exactly the win32 version looks for the config

Many thanks.
