When I give "http://www.gsp" to cURL, it gives me the page from "http://www.gps.com". I want to disable this behaviour (adding .com to invalid urls).

I cannot reproduce this unfortunately, perhaps a work around is to request the http server response and treat the 404 as a condition to trigger code?

Are you using a search-enhanced DNS like OpenDNS? You won't get a 404 from a server that doesn't exist.

Another 2 cents: I don't believe this is a function of curl.  I do know that some ISPs automatically put in an enhanced DNS without informing the customers.  I had the same thing when I opened a new account with Time-Warner/Roadrunner.  Check with your provider, and check the configuration for the DNS resolver on the client machine.

are you using CURLOPT_PROXY by chance? If so, your proxy could be appending the .com.
