libCurl Alternative?

I'm working on a large web cache, and the server I am using is limited in resources and using libcurl to get web pages is killing the servers performance.

The feature I most require is being able to read HTTP headers e.g. 302/301, I then need the script to continue to the new URL and get the page data.

Curl can do this via:

curl_setopt ($ch, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1);

Is there any other function to do this?

How about wget [gnu.org]?
