CURLOPT_TRANSFER_ENCODING - ask for HTTP Transfer Encoding
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TRANSFER_ENCODING, long enable);
Pass a long set to 1L to enable
or 0 to disable.
Adds a request for compressed Transfer Encoding in the outgoing HTTP request. If
the server supports this and so desires, it can respond with the HTTP response
sent using a compressed Transfer-Encoding that will be automatically
uncompressed by libcurl on reception.
Transfer-Encoding differs slightly from the Content-Encoding you ask for with
in that a Transfer-Encoding is strictly
meant to be for the transfer and thus MUST be decoded before the data arrives
in the client. Traditionally, Transfer-Encoding has been much less used and
supported by both HTTP clients and HTTP servers.
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TRANSFER_ENCODING, 1L);
Added in 7.21.6
Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
