OK who wants to write an external to wrap libcurl? ( 
http://curl.sourceforge.net/ ) Or, if you are running OS X, the curl 
command comes pre-installed and you could definitely run it from the 
shell.

"Curl is a command line tool for transferring files with URL syntax, 
supporting FTP, FTPS, HTTP, HTTPS, GOPHER, TELNET, DICT, FILE and LDAP. 
Curl supports HTTPS certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading, 
kerberos, HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, user+password 
authentication, file transfer resume, http proxy tunneling and a 
busload of other useful tricks."
