Currently the Query program uses the 'curl' executable (from the 'cURL' package) to access the remote repositories. But the curl executable requires a 'system' call, that doesn't give us much control over the outcome.

The 'libcurl' library (that also comes with 'cURL') is a much better way to access the remote servers because control won't leave Gnuastro's programs, and we can probably have more control over the outputs and errors and etc.

But currently I have no experience with it, if anyone reading this is familiar with libcurl and has time, it would be great if you can complete this task ;-).
