CURLOPT_STDERR(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_STDERR(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_STDERR - redirect stderr to another stream

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_STDERR, FILE *stream);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a FILE * as parameter. Tell libcurl to use this stream instead of stderr when showing the progress meter and displaying CURLOPT_VERBOSE(3) data.

If you are using libcurl as a Windows DLL, this option causes an exception and a crash in the library since it cannot access a FILE * passed on from the application. A work-around is to instead use CURLOPT_DEBUGFUNCTION(3).

DEFAULT

stderr

curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_STDERR, filep);
curl_easy_perform(curl);
} }
