Basically, you are using the default behavior of libcurl, but doing so
in a way which may confuse future maintainers of your code.

All you really have to do is
 - perform your fopen() call with whatever options you want,
 - pass the FILE * variable to libcurl via the CURLOPT_WRITEDATA option,
and
 - set the write callback function to NULL.

Libcurl will guarantee that this works across all platforms, and not
just linux.

See

http://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/curl_easy_setopt.html#CURLOPTWRITEDATA

Cheers,
Gary
