Web check with curl

From time to time I need to trace HTTP connections without having Firefox running with the correct plugins in place that can do the job. In this case you can do some kind of basic tracing using curl on the command line:

> curl -b "/tmp/curl-cookies" -c "/tmp/curl-cookies" -s -v -o/dev/null https://test.address.tld/

Maybe I will extend this post with other combinations when I have time for some more research on this topic.
