The veritable Swiss Army knife of networking

IBM has published an article on their developerWorks site about using UNIX
networking command-line tools that contains a brief but favourable
mention of curl (see
). A quote:

        The wget utility is invaluable for hands-off downloads, but it can't
        upload files. Nor can it interoperate with secure FTP, telnet, and
        a host of other (older and less-used) Internet protocols. For those
        kinds of transfers, you must turn to the veritable Swiss Army knife of
        networking: curl.

There's probably nothing new there for most of us here, but it might be good
to add to the page
