Thanks for the explanation!

That makes me understand a little more of the details. But, to be
honest, I don't get the big picture. I know that sockets are being used
for inter process communication, but I don't see that here. There is
only one process after all: the application linked with cURL

Is there some general overview concerning how cURL multi socket works?

Helpful would be an example list of steps for a typical retrieval,
something like:

1. Function X is called.

2. Callback Y gets triggered.

3. Data is retrieved.

etc. Or just some very coarse pseudo code.
