CURLOPT_PREQUOTE man page

CURLOPT_PREQUOTE — commands to run before an FTP transfer

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PREQUOTE,
                         struct curl_slist *cmds);

Description

Pass a pointer to a linked list of FTP commands to pass to the server after the transfer type is set. The linked list should be a fully valid list of struct curl_slist structs properly filled in as described for CURLOPT_QUOTE(3). Disable this operation again by setting a NULL to this option.

While CURLOPT_QUOTE(3) and CURLOPT_POSTQUOTE(3) work for SFTP, this option does not.

Default

Example

struct curl_slist *h = NULL;
h = curl_slist_append(h, "SYST");

curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/foo.bin");

  /* pass in the FTP commands to run */
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PREQUOTE, headerlist);

  ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);

  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}

Availability
