.IP "-L/--location"
(HTTP/HTTPS) If the server reports that the requested page has a different
location (indicated with the header line Location:) this flag will let curl
attempt to reattempt the get on the new place. If used together with
\fI-i/--include\fP or \fI-I/--head\fP, headers from all requested pages will
be shown. If authentication is used, curl will only send its credentials to
the initial host, so if a redirect takes curl to a different host, it won't
intercept the user+password. See also \fI--location-trusted\fP on how to
change this.
(HTTP/HTTPS) If the server reports that the requested page has moved to a
different location (indicated with a Location: header and a 3XX response code)
this option will make curl redo the request on the new place. If used together
with \fI-i/--include\fP or \fI-I/--head\fP, headers from all requested pages
will be shown. When authentication is used, curl only sends its credentials to
the initial host. If a redirect takes curl to a different host, it won't be
able to intercept the user+password. See also \fI--location-trusted\fP on how
to change this. You can limit the amount of redirects to follow by using the
\fI--max-redirs\fP option.
If this option is used twice, the second will again disable location following.
