curl (2.8.1)

A Modern and Flexible Web Client for R.

https://github.com/jeroen/curl#readme (devel) https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/ (upstream)
http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/curl

The curl() and curl_download() functions provide highly configurable drop-in replacements for base url() and download.file() with better performance, support for encryption (https, ftps), gzip compression, authentication, and other 'libcurl' goodies. The core of the package implements a framework for performing fully customized requests where data can be processed either in memory, on disk, or streaming via the callback or connection interfaces. Some knowledge of 'libcurl' is recommended; for a more-user-friendly web client see the 'httr' package which builds on this package with http specific tools and logic.
