cURL stands for “Client URL” and is a data transfer application. It consists of two components, the libcurl client-side library and the curl command-line tool. cURL was originally designed to allow Linux IRC users to automate common tasks. However, it is now available for most operating systems and behaves similarly across platforms. In this video, @LearnLinuxTV explains the cURL (Client URL) command and how it interacts with restful APIs.
