I gave a talk for curl://up 2020 this weekend about how we might improve the
curl help system. With 231 options, "curl -h" just overwhelms the user right
now. I quickly coded up a demo of what I had in mind so people can get a
flavour of what it might look like in practise. Run this script just like you
would curl itself and give it the --help option (and --help-demo) to see what
it's capable of (and what it might be capable of if actually implemented):
