    Basic curl example

    Once you’ve compiled PHP with cURL support, you can
    begin using the cURL functions. The basic idea behind the cURL
    functions is that you initialize a cURL session using the
    curl_init(), then you can set all your
    options for the transfer via the curl_setopt(), then you can execute the
    session with the curl_exec()
    and then you finish off your session using the curl_close(). Here is an example that uses
    the cURL functions to fetch the example.com homepage into a
    file:

    Example #1 Using PHP’s cURL module to fetch the
    example.com homepage

    <?php

    $ch curl_init("http://www.example.com/");
    $fp fopen("example_homepage.txt""w");

    curl_setopt($chCURLOPT_FILE$fp);
    curl_setopt($chCURLOPT_HEADER0);

    curl_exec($ch);
    curl_close($ch);
    fclose($fp);
    ?>
