I'm one of libcurl's experts in my work place, and often I'm getting questions like "from where to start...".

I know there are many source samples in the site (and I send links to those as an answer), but I think what is missing is a step-by-step tutorial section that will take a programmer from the very start to a state where his code uses libcurl to complete a transfer (with code examples the user can copy of course).

Another area for documentation improvement is a guide for using the multi API (for advanced users) - it is not trivial to understand the concept of "time & socket callback functions" and I didn't find any place it the site that explain it.

This is just my opinion and personally I didn't have any real problem in the documentation area of the libcurl project (as all needed info is in the site/mailing list all you need to do is to search for it).
