The real xdg config path is $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/curlrc, without the dot. The dotless name seems preferable, so let's match the documentation to the behavior.


curl 8.0.1 doesn't seem to care about $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/.curlc but I was happy to find it does find $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/curlrc. Let's document that.

Yeps, I believe that was just a typo. I don't think it ever used the dot-version in there.
