CURLOPT_TIMECONDITION(3)   curl_easy_setopt options   CURLOPT_TIMECONDITION(3)

NAME

CURLOPT_TIMECONDITION - select condition for a time request

SYNOPSIS

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

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long as parameter. This defines how the CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE(3) time value is treated. You can set this parameter to CURL_TIMECOND_IFMODSINCE or CURL_TIMECOND_IFUNMODSINCE. The last modification time of a file is not always known and in such instances this feature will have no effect even if the given time condition would not have been met. curl_easy_getinfo(3) with the CURLINFO_CONDITION_UNMET option can be used after a transfer to learn if a zero-byte successful "transfer" was due to this condition not matching.

DEFAULT

CURL_TIMECOND_NONE (0)

PROTOCOLS

HTTP, FTP, RTSP, and FILE

EXAMPLE

CURL *curl = curl_easy_init(); if(curl) { curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com"); /* January 1, 2020 is 1577833200 */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TIMEVALUE, 1577833200L); /* If-Modified-Since the above time stamp */ curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_TIMECONDITION, CURL_TIMECOND_IFMODSINCE); /* Perform the request */ curl_easy_perform(curl); }
