libcurl(3)                  libcurl easy interface                  libcurl(3)



NAME
       libcurl-easy - easy interface overview

DESCRIPTION
       When  using  libcurl's  "easy"  interface you init your session and get a handle (often referred to as an "easy
       handle"), which you use as input to the easy interface functions you use. Use curl_easy_init(3) to get the han-
       dle.

       You continue by setting all the options you want in the upcoming transfer, the most important among them is the
       URL itself (you can't transfer anything without a specified URL as you may  have  figured  out  yourself).  You
       might  want  to  set  some  callbacks  as well that will be called from the library when data is available etc.
       curl_easy_setopt(3) is used for all this.

       When all is setup, you tell libcurl to perform the transfer using curl_easy_perform(3).  It will  then  do  the
       entire operation and won't return until it is done (successfully or not).

       After the transfer has been made, you can set new options and make another transfer, or if you're done, cleanup
       the session by calling curl_easy_cleanup(3). If you want persistent connections, you don't cleanup immediately,
       but instead run ahead and perform other transfers using the same easy handle.
