curl_easy_cleanup(3)            libcurl Manual            curl_easy_cleanup(3)



NAME
       curl_easy_cleanup - End a libcurl easy session

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       void curl_easy_cleanup(CURL *handle);


DESCRIPTION
       This  function  must  be  the  last  function  to  call  for  an  easy  session.  It  is  the  opposite  of the
       curl_easy_init(3) function and must be called with the same  handle  as  input  that  the  curl_easy_init  call
       returned.

       This  will  effectively  close all connections this handle has used and possibly has kept open until now. Don't
       call this function if you intend to transfer more files.

       Occasionally you may get your progress callback or header callback called from within curl_easy_cleanup(3)  (if
       previously  set  for the handle using curl_easy_setopt(3)). Like if libcurl decides to shut down the connection
       and the protocol is of a kind that requires a command/response sequence before  disconnect.  Examples  of  such
       protocols are FTP, POP3 and IMAP.

       Any  uses of the handle after this function has been called and have returned, are illegal. This kills the han-
       dle and all memory associated with it!

       With libcurl versions prior to 7.17.: when you've called this, you can safely remove  all  the  strings  you've
       previously told libcurl to use, as it won't use them anymore now.

RETURN VALUE
       None
