account info for FTP

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FTP_ACCOUNT, char *account);

Description

The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

Default

NULL

Protocols

    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FTP_ACCOUNT, "human-resources");

    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

    curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
  }
}
