Does Libcurl support downloading payload in chunks to increase success rate?

I'm trying to write a download manager using libcurl but before I start with it I had a question.

Does libcurl download the whole payload as single chunk or does it divide the payload into smaller chunks. For example some download managers divide the whole payload into small chunks and download each chunk separately. If download of any chunk fails in between then only that chunk needs to be downloaded again and not the whole payload.
