There is. It's called the W3C command line tool (or w3c for short) and is
available at W3C's web server, and is of course based on the WWW reference
lib. I use it for shell scripts etc. all the time. It doesn't return HTTP
headers tho.

You might also try the "from" and "to" unix commands if they're available on
your system. They just pipe some input or output to/from stdin/out and a
server port somewhere.
