curl and fallocate

From: Manfred Schwarb <manfred99_at_gmx.ch>

Hi,

while doing parallel downloads with curl, I found that the resulting
files are somewhat fragmented. I.e. doing

for ((i=1; i<20; i++)); do
   curl -o $i.txt http://server/$i.txt &
done

So it seems curl does not fallocate the resulting files. Is there a
possibility to achieve this? Or are there plans to add a fallocate
option to curl?

Thanks,
Manfred
