CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_SIZE_DOWNLOAD_T, curl_off_t *dlp);

Description

Example

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

  /* Perform the request */
  res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

  if(!res) {
    /* check the size */
    curl_off_t dl;
    res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_SIZE_DOWNLOAD_T, &dl);
    if(!res) {
      printf("Downloaded " CURL_FORMAT_CURL_OFF_T " bytes\n", cl);
    }
  }
}
