In Installing RVM manual I see a lot of lines starting with '\':
Install RVM with ruby:
$ \curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby
I'd think it is just mistype but they repeat it many times.
So what is the reason?

There's no error, it's a little hack to avoid using a
shell alias if any exists.
This works too :
'curl' (...) "curl" (...) /usr/bin/curl (...) command curl (...) command -p curl (...)
A command preceded by a slash temporarily disables any aliases for the command.
