CURLOPT_CURLU man page

CURLOPT_CURLU ā€” set URL with CURLU *

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CURLU, void *pointer);

Description

Pass in a pointer to the URL to work with. The parameter should be a CURLU *. Setting CURLOPT_CURLU(3) will explicitly override CURLOPT_URL(3).

CURLOPT_URL(3) or CURLOPT_CURLU(3) must be set before a transfer is started.

libcurl will use this handle and its contents read-only and will not change its contents. An application can very well update the contents of the URL handle after a transfer is done and if the same handle is then used in a subsequent request the updated contents will then be used.

Default

The default value of this parameter is NULL.

Protocols

All

Example

CURL *handle = curl_easy_init();
CURLU *urlp = curl_url();
int res = 0;
if(curl) {

  res = curl_url_set(urlp, CURLUPART_URL, "http://example.com", 0);

  curl_easy_setopt(handle, CURLOPT_CURLU, urlp);

  ret = curl_easy_perform(handle);

  curl_url_cleanup(urlp);
  curl_easy_cleanup(handle);
}

Availability

Added in 7.63.0.

Return Value

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