CURLOPT_HEADEROPT man page

CURLOPT_HEADEROPT — set how to send HTTP headers

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HEADEROPT, long bitmask);

Description

Pass a long that is a bitmask of options of how to deal with headers. The two mutually exclusive options are:

CURLHEADER_UNIFIED - the headers specified in CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER(3) will be used in requests both to servers and proxies. With this option enabled, CURLOPT_PROXYHEADER(3) will not have any effect.

CURLHEADER_SEPARATE - makes CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER(3) headers only get sent to a server and not to a proxy. Proxy headers must be set with CURLOPT_PROXYHEADER(3) to get used. Note that if a non-CONNECT request is sent to a proxy, libcurl will send both server headers and proxy headers. When doing CONNECT, libcurl will send CURLOPT_PROXYHEADER(3) headers only to the proxy and then CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER(3) headers only to the server.
