Example

static size_t read_cb(char *ptr, size_t size, size_t nmemb, void *userdata)
{
  FILE *src = userdata;
  /* copy as much data as possible into the 'ptr' buffer, but no more than
     'size' * 'nmemb' bytes */
  size_t retcode = fread(ptr, size, nmemb, src);

  return retcode;
}

int main(void)
{
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    FILE *src = fopen("local-file", "r");
    curl_off_t fsize; /* set this to the size of the input file */

    /* we want to use our own read function */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_READFUNCTION, read_cb);

    /* enable PUT */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PUT, 1L);

    /* specify target */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/dir/to/newfile");

    /* now specify which pointer to pass to our callback */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_READDATA, src);

    /* Set the size of the file to upload */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_INFILESIZE_LARGE, (curl_off_t)fsize);

    /* Now run off and do what you have been told */
    curl_easy_perform(curl);
  }
}
