# How do I get cURL to not show the progress bar?

I'm trying to use cURL in a script and get it to ***not*** show the progress bar. I've tried the -s, -silent, -S, and -quiet options, but none of them work. Here's a typical command I've tried: curl -s http://google.com > temp.html I only get the progress bar when pushing it to a file, so curl -s http://google.com doesn't have a progress bar, but curl -s http://google.com > temp.html does.
