So I need libcurl (dev) on my debian 8 machine. I have two issues with this:
apt-get install libcurl-dev gives me an error:
E: Package 'libcurl-dev' has no installation candidate
B) It's pretty outdated.
It seems sensible to build from source but I have two questions:
1) Which version do I need from this page since I am using debian 7, I can;t seem to understand how to find the package URL: https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=curl
2) What is the common location for me to build it? What directory should I compile it?
