Makes Curl mute. So those are the basics for the curl command. There are many, many more options, but for now, we know how to use curl to do something that is actually quite powerful: fetch a file, anywhere on the Internet, from the simple confines of our command-line.

This is the Unix philosophy: Write programs that do one thing and do it well. Write programs to work together. Write programs to handle text streams, because that is a universal interface.
If you curl without any options except for the URL, the content of the URL whether it's a webpage, or a binary file, such as an image or a zip file will be printed out to screen. Try it:. But what if we wanted to send the contents of a web file to another program? Maybe to wc , which is used to count words and lines? To enter to the folder you need to use the cd command following the location of the folder which contains the executable file as you can see below.
