CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3)         curl_easy_setopt options         CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_HTTPGET - ask for an HTTP GET request

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h> CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, long useget);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long. If useget is 1, this forces the HTTP request to get back to using GET. Usable if a POST, HEAD, PUT, etc has been used previously using the same curl handle. When setting CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3) to 1, it will automatically set CURLOPT_NOBODY(3) to 0 and CURLOPT_UPLOAD(3) to 0. Setting this option to zero has no effect. Applications need to explicitly select which HTTP request method to use, they cannot deselect a method. To reset a handle to default method, consider curl_easy_reset(3).

DEFAULT

0

PROTOCOLS

HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE

curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com"); /* use a GET to fetch this */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, 1L); /* Perform the request */ curl_easy_perform(curl); }

AVAILABILITY

Along with HTTP

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if HTTP is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
