cURL is a library that lets you make HTTP requests in PHP. Everything you need to know about it (and most other extensions) can be found in the PHP manual( )

cURL is a library that makes HTTP requests in PHP.

Here are the few functions used in cURL.
curl_close — Close a cURL session
curl_copy_handle — Copy a cURL handle along with all of its preferences
curl_errno — Return the last error number
curl_error — Return a string containing the last error for the current session
curl_escape — URL encodes the given string
