I am working on Task G right now and when I try to call curl from my command line, it responds saying that it isn´t recognized as an internal or external command.

Any advice would be appreciated?

When I get this error (on my Windows7 box), it usually means the program isn’t in the PATH environment variable.

You can test this (and work around it) by finding curl.exe and executing it from that location. If you don’t know how to find curl.exe or how to execute it, let me know and I’ll walk you through it.

If this is indeed the problem, the permanent fix is to make sure that curl.exe’s folder is in the PATH environment variable. Again, if you don’t know how to check this, or how to put it into the PATH variable, let me know.

Thanks John. It´s been a little while since I checked back. No I wasn´t able to find the curl.exe file. If you could offer some direction in this area that would be much appreciated! Ben
