CURLOPT_CURLU(3) curl_easy_setopt options CURLOPT_CURLU(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_CURLU - set URL with CURLU *

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CURLU, void *pointer);

DESCRIPTION

Pass in a pointer to the URL to work with. The parameter should be a CURLU *. Setting CURLOPT_CURLU(3) will explicitly override CURLOPT_URL(3).
CURLOPT_URL(3) or CURLOPT_CURLU(3) must be set before a transfer is started.
libcurl will use this handle and its contents read-only and will not change its contents. An application can very well update the contents of the URL handle after a transfer is done and if the same handle is then used in a subsequest request the updated contents will then be used.

DEFAULT

The default value of this parameter is NULL.

PROTOCOLS

All

EXAMPLE

CURL *handle = curl_easy_init();
CURLU *urlp = curl_url();
int res = 0;
if(curl) {
res = curl_url_set(urlp, CURLUPART_URL, "http://example.com", 0);
curl_easy_setopt(handle, CURLOPT_CURLU, urlp);
ret = curl_easy_perform(handle);
curl_url_cleanup(urlp); curl_easy_cleanup(handle); }

AVAILABILITY
