A few built-in PHP functions (like file_get_contents) can access remote pages using their URL (if the server is configured to allow this, and you have a recent enough version of PHP). This means you can execute scripts on remote servers if those scripts respond to GET query strings in a URL.A POST request is different. To execute a remote script by sending POST data, you need to send an HTTP POST request. A browser can do this easily with a form. PHP uses cURL.A POST request is only one illustration of cURL's functionality. It can use other methods and protocols.
