I think paul had it. more correct.
Continue/Resume a previous file transfer at the given offset.
The given offset is the exact number of bytes that will be
skipped counted from the beginning of the source file before it
is transferred to the destination. If used with uploads, the
ftp server command SIZE will not be used by curl.
Use "-C -" to tell curl to automatically find out where/how to
resume the transfer. It then uses the given output/input files
to figure that out.
Now your line:
curl ftp://ftp.someone.net/somefile.iso > somefile.iso
Looks like it might become:
curl -C - ftp://ftp.someone.net/somefile.iso > somefile.iso
Note the '-' after the -C
