CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL man page

CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL — get the URL a redirect would go to

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, char **urlp);

Description

Pass a pointer to a char pointer to receive the URL a redirect would take you to if you would enable CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3). This can come very handy if you think using the built-in libcurl redirect logic isn't good enough for you but you would still prefer to avoid implementing all the magic of figuring out the new URL.

Protocols

HTTP(S)

Example

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  CURLcode res;
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
  res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
  if(res == CURLE_OK) {
    char *url = NULL;
    curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, &url);
    if(url)
      printf("Redirect to: %s\n", url);
  }
  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}

Availability

Added in 7.18.2

Return Value

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
