CURLOPT_HTTPGET — ask for a HTTP GET request

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, long useget);

Description

Pass a long. If useget is 1, this forces the HTTP request to get back to using GET. Usable if a POST, HEAD, PUT, etc has been used previously using the same curl handle.

When setting CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3) to 1, it will automatically set CURLOPT_NOBODY(3) to 0 and CURLOPT_UPLOAD(3) to 0.

Default

0

  /* Perform the request */ 
  curl_easy_perform(curl);
}
