CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME_T - get the time until the file transfer start

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_PRETRANSFER_TIME_T, curl_off_t *timep);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a pointer to a curl_off_t to receive the time, in microseconds, it took from the start until the file transfer is just about to begin. This includes all pre-transfer commands and negotiations that are specific to the particular protocol(s) involved. It does not involve the sending of the protocol- specific request that triggers a transfer.
