How to override curl options in PKGBUILD?

Hi, this is my first experience in writing a PKGBUILD so I apologize in advance for the dumb question. My source file does not have a direct download link, but I checked that it can be downloaded correctly using curl with these options:

curl -JLO https://bintray.com/15knots/p2-zip/download_file?file_path=CMakeEd-1_10_0.zip

However, simply putting:

source=("https://bintray.com/15knots/p2-zip/download_file?file_path=CMakeEd-1_10_0.zip")

in the PKGBUILD gives this error:

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 Not Found
==> ERROR: Failure while downloading https://bintray.com/15knots/p2-zip/download_file?file_path=CMakeEd-1_10_0.zip
    Aborting...

when running makepkg. So I guess that curl is invoked with different options. Is there a way to override the curl options with -JLO in the PKGBUILD?
Thanks.

curl -JLO https://bintray.com/15knots/p2-zip/download_file?file_path=CMakeEd-1_10_0.zip

Just downloads you the broken HTML page. On bintray you want to use dl.bintray.com links like this:

https://dl.bintray.com/15knots/p2-zip/CMakeEd-1.10.0.zip

Yes, sorry I put a wrong link on my initial post: the file name had underscores instead of points. I fixed it, also in the PKGBUILD, and now makepkg downloads the correct file but saves it with a wrong name: download_file?file_path=CMakeEd-1.10.0.zip. Using your direct download link instead everything works. Thanks!!

You can override the filename. See

man PKGBUILD | less -p "source \(array\)"
