You basically have two options:

1) just invoke the curl command line tool from within your programs just like
you can from any other language. This is often the quickest way forward.

2) make a "binding" for libcurl for the "Dynamic C" language. There are 30+
existing bindings for libcurl for just about every imaginable programming
language already and using their source codes could be a way to get
inspiration on how to make your own. For libcurl help you can use the
curl-library mailing list, but for Dynamic C specific things you're better off
asking in a forum where such knowledgable persons might hang out.

Of course option 2 also implies that you can port/build libcurl as-is for your
target hardware + OS.
