curl_mime_name man page

curl_mime_name ā€” set a mime part's name


#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_mime_name(curl_mimepart * part, const char * name);


curl_mime_name(3) sets a mime part's name. This is the way HTTP form fields are named.

part is the part's handle to assign a name to.

name points to the zero-terminated name string.

The name string is copied into the part, thus the associated storage may safely be released or reused after call. Setting a part's name twice is valid: only the value set by the last call is retained. It is possible to "unname" a part by setting name to NULL.


As long as at least one of HTTP, SMTP or IMAP is enabled. Added in 7.56.0.

Return Value

CURLE_OK or a CURL error code upon failure.

 curl_mimepart *part;
