Do you mean if we have a TCP/IP statck implemented then we could use cURL library?
The GPRS modem we are going to use has a TCP/IP stack implemented, then according to you we should be able use the existing libcurl with little bit tweaking the code to implement AT commands for GPRS modem.
We are planning have a generic solution which should be compatible with any kind of microcontroller.
Please let me know your opinion.
Thanks and Regards,

At a minimum, you will need a TCP/IP stack for libcurl to operate. There
is an open source network stack, lwIP ("Lightweight IP"), which can be
ported to run on systems without an OS, but there are caveats. Try for more information.
What you are attempting has significant challenges. I'm also curious
what type of microcontroller you are planning to use. Even stripped
down, libcurl has a significant footprint for a small embedded system.
If you have the memory resources, I would recommend a small RTOS
( instead of trying to wing it without an
