curl

R package curl. 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.
