||curl: A Modern and Flexible Web Client for R
The curl() and curl_download() functions provide highly configurable
drop-in replacements for base url() and download.file() with better
performance, support for encryption (https, ftps), gzip compression,
authentication, and other 'libcurl' goodies. The core of the package
implements a framework for performing fully customized requests where data
can be processed either in memory, on disk, or streaming via the callback
or connection interfaces. Some knowledge of 'libcurl' is recommended; for a
more-user-friendly web client see the 'httr' package which builds on this
package with http specific tools and logic.
