curl in PowerShell

curl is a command-line tool for transferring data from or to a server with any of the supported protocols including HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, and IMAP. The tool provides numerous options like resume transfer, limit bandwidth, and proxy support. curl requires minimal user interaction and is therefore preferred for automation.

curl in PowerShell uses Invoke-WebRequest. From PowerShell 3.03.0 and above, you can use Invoke-WebRequest, which is equivalent to curl.
