CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE - Man Page

global DNS cache

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE,
                          long enable);

Description

Has no function since 7.62.0. Do not use!

Pass a long. If the enable value is 1, it tells curl to use a global DNS cache that survives between easy handle creations and deletions. This is not thread-safe and this uses a global variable.

See CURLOPT_SHARE(3) and curl_share_init(3) for the correct way to share DNS cache between transfers.

Default

0

Example

int main(void)
{
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode ret;
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
    /* switch off the use of a global, thread unsafe, cache */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE, 0L);
    ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
    curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
  }
}
