I have a background in .NET, specifically in C# WPF and ASP.Net, but now I am going to use more golang and C. Consider the following situation as an example:
The software I should program should should basically upload data and present that upload-process using a GUI. Each language used in production has usually (extern) classes/libraries that provide (Network)Stream-I/O, but it's lots of more work to program an abstract "Network-Framework" (because often you have to use TCP/IP-Sockets and other low-level stuff, which is a huge origin of complexity [when your company doesn't provide such functionality already]), adjusted to the needs of my program, than using curl. The upload-function of my program could only wrap curl, a well tested and widely used and accepted tool for this purpose, which has lots of options. I know that this "loss of control" is a huge disadvantage, but curl also offers data-output which I can use as communcation-interface between my program and this tool. When they are no acceptable libs out there, that offer such features, is it "legit" to use curl for a professional product?
