Example

struct data {
  void *custom;
};

static int my_trace(CURL *handle, curl_infotype type,

                    void *clientp)
{
  struct data *mine = clientp;
  printf("our ptr: %p\n", mine->custom);

  /* output debug info */
}

int main(void)
{
  CURL *curl;
  CURLcode res;
  struct data my_tracedata;

  curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_DEBUGFUNCTION, my_trace);

    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_DEBUGDATA, &my_tracedata);

    /* the DEBUGFUNCTION has no effect until we enable VERBOSE */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_VERBOSE, 1L);

    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
