Curl multiple URLs

October 23rd, 2006 toydi Posted in curl, Network, xargs | Hits: 46830 | 1 Comment »

A previous post talked about the usage of curl to request a single URL and display its response header fields. It’s good to know that curl also accepts multiple URLs as arguments.

To display response header information of several URLs:

curl -I http://linuxbyexample.co.nr http://lne.blogdns.com/lbe

When there is a long URL list in a file, use xargs instead:

xargs curl -I < url-list.txt
