Re: curl vs wget

Thinking about wget and wput. . .

bash, the shell, behaves like plain old sh when it's called that way. It's all in the magic of file system links and a startup-time determination by the tool as to how it was called.

Wouldn't it be nice to have a tool - purl - which does an upload by magically inserting a -T before the URL and perhaps some .netrc password gimmicks? curl and purl would link to the same executable.

I have never wanted to do an upload and a download using a single command line with a -T url followed by a simple url with a -O or -o. Are things like that part of the concept?

But then the real competition for maintaining a web site comes from ssh and scp which easily goes both ways. There is also sftp . . . . naah.
