I don't understand why that doesn't work. Another way to do it is to use the
-o option like: "curl -o dump" or the -O option as in: "curl -O". The latter example will create a local file
named 'download.html'.

The amazingly large amount of different libcurl bindings are all contributed
by friendly people who believe libcurl is better used natively with the
language or environment they like/use/master.

Why isn't Fortran there? Quite simple. No one made any Fortran binding yet!
(Or perhaps someone has, but hasn't told me about it!)

For a rather slick list of all the bindings, its authors and where you find
them, check out this:
