I checked the TPF port, it does not work on z/OS due to missing specific TPF files.
TPF seems to have an z/OS kernel, so the port itself should be possible.
I am also looking for the curl library and found nothing helpful at the moment.
We are business partner of IBM and are currently trying to get one of the responsibilities in order to get the code of the library or the library in binary form. As offered in my thread ( I would help porting the library.
