I fell over this document named “What’s New in the Solaris 10 10/08 Release” and it includes this funny little quote towards the end:
C-URL – The C-URL Wrappers Library
C-URL is a utility library that provides programmatic access to the most common Internet protocols such as, HTTP, FTP, TFTP, SFTP, and TELNET. C-URL is also extensively used in various applications.
The project is cURL, the tool is curl and the library is libcurl. There’s nothing named C-URL and it isn’t any “wrappers library”… And the list of protocols is also funny since it includes 6 protocols while a modern libcurl supports 13 different ones, and also if you build libcurl to support SFTP you also get SCP (which the list doesn’t include) etc.
It just looks so very sloppy to me. But hey, what do I know?
