Getting cURL to output verbose to a file

This is about to drive me crazy. What I want to do is simple:

output ALL the verbose information from curl to a file

I have read the manual, tried several options and searched this forum but no salvation...

I'm using

curl -k -Q "command" --user user:passwd --ftp-pasv --ftp-ssl -v ftp://my.ftp:1000

As an option

I tried to redirect this in bash with

curl -k -Q "command" --user user:passwd --ftp-pasv --ftp-ssl -v ftp://my.ftp:1000 > output.txt

but this only outputs the last issued command namely, a directory listening with several directories.

Other options as -o output.log or --trace also don't seem to work. --trace actually does but is in a non-readable format. So is --trace-ascii

This should be something really simple, any help of you guys would be appreciated

I don't use curl very often, but from the sounds of it, perhaps redirecting standard error instead of standard output may be what you're looking for. You can try:

curl <your curl options here> 2>stderr.log
