If you're re-using a curl handle then it may be a good idea to set
these explicitly. However, these are also the default values so it's
not really necessary to set them for a new handle. You're right that
it's a good idea to include the 'b' in the fopen() mode.

I wouldn't recommend setting this to 0 unless you're very sure that
the connection will succeed; otherwise, your script will hang
indefinitely waiting for the connection to be made.
