perl: CURL REST API Query

I have not used cUrl before, but I have noticed that in my Perl script I give a query and it takes the format:

Code:
URL?query={field[value];field['value']}

But, when I try this with cUrl, it will not query at all:

Code:
curl: (3) [globbing] nested braces not supported at pos 88

I have tried moving the braces etc etc, it just does not seem to take the same format

So, the Perl works and it pulls back XML for the queried fields, but why will cUrl not accept this?

It seems like you need excapes or quoting to stop globbing in the query area. Show us more. A GET form submit URL cannot have specials like that in the query area.
