I send this question to curl and python malling list. But I think I will
get no answer.

Sorry for this noise. But maybe, it still is about a curl library.

Can someone help with this?

I really searching how to install it. But a lot of answer in stack overflow
don't help.

   - pycurl pip install for python 3.4
   - Having trouble installing pycurl on windows
   - How do i install pyCurl?
   - Receiving error message when trying to install Pycurl
   - When installing pycurl on Windows I get, “Please specify
   - Can't install pycurl with pip

And so on. None of this question give the answer that worked. The first
question was: how do I send this st**id argument with pip. After searching
a lot, I discovery:

pip install --install-option="--curl-dir=C:\curl\lib\ " pycurl

I tried a lot of things. None work. Windows is not automatic as linux or
mac. Even, I tried to install using my IDE (Pycharm) and the same problem.

I am not expert in install library in a python program. And realy don't
want to learn it. Just run the basic command and have the default library.

So, how do I install it? What I really need to do?

And some ideas:

   - Why in hell does it need to have this line anyway? Why not by default,
   download all the files it need to run automaticaly. Why have this:
      - def configure_windows(self):
      - curl_dir = scan_argv(self.argv, "--curl-dir=")
      - if curl_dir is None:
      - fail("Please specify --curl-dir=/path/to/built/libcurl")
   - Why not a more constructive advice in the error? Or maybe in the code
   if someone google it. Nothing help-me with this stupid line..

Before ask, I have

   - Python 3.7.0
   - pip 18.0 from
   (python 3.7)
   - Microsoft Windows [versão 10.0.17134.228]
   - curl 7.55.1 (Windows) libcurl/7.55.1 WinSSL
      - Release-Date: [unreleased]
      - Protocols: dict file ftp ftps http https imap imaps pop3 pop3s smtp
      smtps telnet tftp
      - Features: AsynchDNS IPv6 Largefile SSPI Kerberos SPNEGO NTLM SSL
