I think paul had it. more correct.

       -C/--continue-at <offset>
              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 > somefile.iso

Looks like it might become:

   curl -C - > somefile.iso

Note the '-' after the -C
