CURLINFO_FTP_ENTRY_PATH(3) curl_easy_getinfo options CURLINFO_FTP_ENTRY_PATH(3)

NAME

CURLINFO_FTP_ENTRY_PATH - get entry path in FTP server

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_FTP_ENTRY_PATH, char **path);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a pointer to a char pointer to receive a pointer to a string holding the path of the entry path. That is the initial path libcurl ended up in when logging on to the remote FTP server. This stores a NULL as pointer if something is wrong.

The path pointer will be NULL or pointing to private memory you MUST NOT free - it gets freed when you call curl_easy_cleanup(3) on the corresponding CURL handle.

PROTOCOLS

FTP(S) and SFTP

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com");
  res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
  if(!res) {
    /* extract the entry path */
    char *ep = NULL;
    res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_FTP_ENTRY_PATH, &ep);
    if(!res && ep) {
      printf("Entry path was: %s\n", ep);
    }
  }
  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}

AVAILABILITY
