degree when doing plain HTTP GETs. I think it appeared slow because you got a
somewhat smallish file and you had the output appear on stdout.

I'd suggest that you check the docs. The curl_easy_setopt() options are all
That file is meant to get all the headers written to it. I just compiled and
run the simple.c examples to verify that it actually works, and I got a set
of headers in my "dumpit" file. (I did this right now on my solaris 2.7 box
with libcurl 7.9.2.)

This passes the headerfile pointer to the built-in writeheader function and
will be used to store headers to.
