What is Curl?
Curl is an open-source command-line tool and cross-platform library (libcurl) that allows you to transfer data over the network using over 25+ protocols, including HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and works on Windows, macOS, and Linux platforms. Curl is excellent for testing APIs and has built-in support for HTTP Cookies, SSL, proxies, certificate validation, and user authentication.
What is HTTP?
HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol) is the foundation of the World Wide Web, enabling communication between HTTP clients and servers to power websites and mobile applications. Devices communicate by sending HTTP requests and receiving HTTP responses. Requests use various "HTTP methods" to specify the desired action on a resource, each with its unique semantics. However, certain standard functionality, such as security, idempotence, and cacheability, may be common to a group of methods.
