curl_easy_setopt

NAME

curl_easy_setopt - set options for a curl easy handle  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLoption option, parameter);  

DESCRIPTION

curl_easy_setopt(3) is used to tell libcurl how to behave. By setting the appropriate options, the application can change libcurl's behavior. All options are set with an option followed by a parameter. That parameter can be a long, a function pointer, an object pointer or a curl_off_t, depending on what the specific option expects. Read this manual carefully as bad input values may cause libcurl to behave badly! You can only set one option in each function call. A typical application uses many curl_easy_setopt(3) calls in the setup phase.

Options set with this function call are valid for all forthcoming transfers performed using this handle. The options are not in any way reset between transfers, so if you want subsequent transfers with different options, you must change them between the transfers. You can optionally reset all options back to internal default with curl_easy_reset(3).

Strings passed to libcurl as 'char *' arguments, are copied by the library; thus the string storage associated to the pointer argument may be overwritten after curl_easy_setopt(3) returns. The only exception to this rule is really CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS(3), but the alternative that copies the string CURLOPT_COPYPOSTFIELDS(3) has some usage characteristics you need to read up on.

Before version 7.17.0, strings were not copied. Instead the user was forced keep them available until libcurl no longer needed them.

The handle is the return code from a curl_easy_init(3) or curl_easy_duphandle(3) call.

TELNET OPTIONS

RETURN VALUE

CURLE_OK (zero) means that the option was set properly, non-zero means an error occurred as <curl/curl.h> defines. See the libcurl-errors(3) man page for the full list with descriptions.

If you try to set an option that libcurl doesn't know about, perhaps because the library is too old to support it or the option was removed in a recent version, this function will return CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION. If support for the option was disabled at compile-time, it will return CURLE_NOT_BUILT_IN.  

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  CURLcode res;
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
  res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}}
