CURLINFO_RETRY_AFTER - Man Page

returns the Retry-After retry delay

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_RETRY_AFTER,
                           curl_off_t *retry);

Description

Pass a pointer to a curl_off_t variable to receive the number of seconds the HTTP server suggests the client should wait until the next request is issued. The information from the "Retry-After:" header.

While the HTTP header might contain a fixed date string, the CURLINFO_RETRY_AFTER(3) always returns the number of seconds to wait - or zero if there was no header or the header could not be parsed.

Default

Returns zero delay if there was no header.

    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
    if(res == CURLE_OK) {
      curl_off_t wait = 0;
      curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_RETRY_AFTER, &wait);
