I too am confused- what exactly is it you want to do?
There's always the windows scheduler (if that's what you want to do).

I'm being presumptuous but AFAIK Curl is a command-line tool or a library
and that's just about it.

If you're really hooked on the speed issue integrate CurlLib into a VC++ app
that wraps the service you want to perform.

If you are speaking to it's function as a library- that's cool... but you'
have to tell us what that context is, because in that case CurlLib changes
into just a mere 'component' in the larger scope of what it us you're
trying to do.

Unless (of course) you're having problems integrating it into your own
custom app.
