shortest code to open a web page from PHP

I have Windows Vista and PHP with Curl.
I would save a web page on my harddisk with a PHP command-line command. What's the more minimalist way to do it?

without using curl:
download.php
<?php
file_put_contents($_SERVER['argv'][2], file_get_contents($_SERVER['argv'][1]));

Then call the script to download
php.exe download.php http://www.example.com destination.html

or without any saved script:
php.exe -r 'file_put_contents("destination.html", file_get_contents("http://www.example.com"));'

ok for windows the quotes must be changed to:

php.exe -r "file_put_contents('destination.html', file_get_contents('http://www.example.com'));"
