Well, I have a very limited binding to libcurl, that's actually a bit ugly.
I use ffi, and wrote two functions in C. One initializes curl, and saves a
curl handle in a static global variable (so that curl can use a single http
session for several file downloads). Another downloads a URL and saves it
as a file. This second function involves four separate libcurl calls. For
me (and perhaps for most libcurl users) this is enough.
