I've tried following Run cURL commands from Windows console but typing in any curl command returns nothing.

See below - I just get back the command prompt.

curl: try 'curl --help' or 'curl --manual' for more information

c:\curl>curl google.com


Any clues as to why this may be the case?

Does curl -L google.com work? –  grawity Nov 21 '11 at 13:13

Check to make sure it didn't already save the file. If not, try curl http://www.google.com.
