Um, did you read the code? getinmemory.c downloads the file and puts it--get
this--into memory, not onto disk. ftpfile.c puts the data into a file
called curl.tar.gz in the current directory. Naturally, neither example
will work unless you change the URL in the code. If you want a GUI dialog
to show up as the file is downloaded, that's certainly possible as well.
smooth-gtk-thread.c would be a good example to start from.
