    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CURL explains cURL. Libraries are a whole different thing. (I'm not sure if you're asking how cURL works or how libraries work.)

    BTW, cURL is a command-line program. The library version is called libcurl.

    cURL is a computer software project providing a library and command-line tool for transferring data using various protocols. The cURL project produces two products, libcurl and cURL. For more details http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CURL

    curl allows you to connect and communicate to many different types of servers with many different types of protocols. libcurl currently supports the http, https, ftp, gopher, telnet, dict, file, and ldap protocols. libcurl also supports HTTPS certificates, HTTP POST, HTTP PUT, FTP uploading (this can also be done with PHP's ftp extension), HTTP form based upload, proxies, cookies, and user+password authentication.

    Go through php manual for curl for more details.
