CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE - Man Page

filename to read .netrc info from

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE, char *file);

Description

Pass a char pointer as parameter, pointing to a null-terminated string containing the full path name to the file you want libcurl to use as .netrc file. If this option is omitted, and CURLOPT_NETRC(3) is set, libcurl checks for a .netrc file in the current user's home directory.

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

int main(void)
{
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode ret;

    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NETRC, CURL_NETRC_OPTIONAL);
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE, "/tmp/magic-netrc");
    ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
  }
}
