wuzz [OPTIONS]... [URL]


Wuzz is an interactive tool for generating and sending HTTP requests, as well as viewing the responses. Instead of having to specify the HTTP headers, parameters, body etc. on the command-line, a simple and intuitive CUI (console user interface) can be used. Wuzz's command line arguments are similar to cURL's arguments, so it can be used to inspect and modify requests copied from a browser's network inspector with the "copy as cURL" feature.

-d, --data-, --data-binary DATA

Specify a (binary) data to be sent
