My default aliases includes an alias that sets
curl=curl -s to keep curl requests quiet. More fool me.
I was trying to send a buffer using node that contained some
null values (
0x00) and actually zero visible characters and testing on the command line (as I do) using
curl would always fail with:
* Failed writing body (0 != 141) * Closing connection 0
Without (my default)
-s I would have seen this:
Warning: Binary output can mess up your terminal. Use "--output -" to tell Warning: curl to output it to your terminal anyway, or consider "--output Warning: <FILE>" to save to a file.
-s hides both progress and errors. So now I use
curl=curl -s -S to only hide progress and to keep errors.
