There was also some discussion on by the octave developers about  
cURL, but it looks like it is not quite yet in 2.9.9.  In the latest  
development CVS archive:
you will find:
which uses cURL.  It looks like it was added to the current  
development sources in Oct 2006.  However, these sources are  
considered buggy and not for typical use (read:

for more information).  Between the wiki page mentioned and the  
discussion I ran across on the maintainers site, I thought that the  
functionality was already in octave.  Looks like it will be in a  
future development release.
