Php Curl download file

We want to show how one can make a Curl download file from a server. See comments in the code as explanations.

// open file descriptor
$fp = fopen ("image.png", 'w+') or die('Unable to write a file'); 
// file to download
$ch = curl_init('');
// enable SSL if needed
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false); 
// output to file descriptor
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FILE, $fp);          
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);
// set large timeout to allow curl to run for a longer time
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 1000);     
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_USERAGENT, 'any');
// Enable debug output
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, true);
