CURLOPT_BUFFERSIZE man page

CURLOPT_BUFFERSIZE — set preferred receive buffer size

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_BUFFERSIZE, long size);

Description

Pass a long specifying your preferred size (in bytes) for the receive buffer in libcurl. The main point of this would be that the write callback gets called more often and with smaller chunks. This is just treated as a request, not an order. You cannot be guaranteed to actually get the given size.

This size is by default set as big as possible (CURL_MAX_WRITE_SIZE), so it only makes sense to use this option if you want it smaller.

Default

CURL_MAX_WRITE_SIZE

Protocols

Example

Availability

Return Value
