There is a port for cURL for Android:

But I think that your best bet for this one is the git repo:

  • https://github.com/jahrome/curl-android

                                 _   _ ____  _
                          ___| | | |  _ \| |
                         / __| | | | |_) | |
                        | (__| |_| |  _ <| |___
                         \___|\___/|_| \_\_____|


    Curl is a command line tool for transferring data specified with URL syntax. Find out how to use curl by reading the curl.1 man page or the MANUAL document. Find out how to install Curl by reading the INSTALL document.

    libcurl is the library curl is using to do its job. It is readily available to be used by your software. Read the libcurl.3 man page to learn how!
