CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE_LARGE man page

CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE_LARGE ā€” set time value for conditional

Synopsis

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE_LARGE, curl_off_t val);

Description

Pass a curl_off_t val as parameter. This should be the time counted as seconds since 1 Jan 1970, and the time will be used in a condition as specified with CURLOPT_TIMECONDITION(3).

The difference between this option and CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE(3) is the type of the argument. On systems where 'long' is only 32 bit wide, this option has to be used to set dates beyond the year 2038.

  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE_LARGE, (curl_off_t)1577833200);

  /* If-Modified-Since the above time stamp */
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TIMECONDITION, CURL_TIMECOND_IFMODSINCE);
