sample code vs sdk

Hello,

 

I have a simple question regarding the sample code http://developer.authorize.net/downloads/samplecode/ and the sdk http://developer.authorize.net/downloads/ using php.

 

What is the benefit of using the sdk over a simple curl script? Seems like overkill for a what I'm doing which is just a single product as well as making it more complicated.

 

Thank you.

Re: sample code vs sdk

Personally, I don't get the SDKs either. Maybe it for those who don't know how to program, but then, if they are doing something that it wasn't supported/or bugs, then they will have no ideas why it doesn't work. I would rather start with the sample code just to get the idea of how it work and do my own code.
