I don't know what you really want to do, but I used to use curl to GET dan POST data from or to an url.

hmmm how to use curl... i am pretty much novice in all these... all i want to achieve is access a local network site
which is a website available only to locallly connected PC and not global website... and when i query this the response in shell prompt should be the the output which we get when we use same link in web browser.... but ofcourse in unix it should come in string xml or html format... hope you understood what i want to achieve... i dont know whether its possible or not either...

PS: we need to use proxy to open this website in webpage using internet explorer...
