Re: Curl output file not created when used with external tool

Hello Paul,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll look into it. As of now we're already using
3 different tools for this simple webAPI access (our mapping tool, curl and
batch files) so we shud try to minimize that and batch file wrapper did the
trick (also, its native to windows so no setup overhead). Will get familiar
with the script utility for future.
