gurl—a general downloader

I like to keep things basic. Because a command-line, download program is already a part of the base package installation, it is all I need. Once I learned curl I liked it quite a bit. As always I need help remembering the options so I wrote a general wrapper script and it seems to be all I need. It features redirect following, progress bar, and resume support. It looks like this:

# gurl http://.../archlinux-2014.09.03-dual.iso
###############################                                           43.4%

gurl can be found in my general scripts repository.
