Warning: this feature is early code and is marked as experimental. It can only be enabled by explicitly telling configure with --enable-alt-svc. You are advised to not ship this in production before the experimental label is removed.  

DESCRIPTION

Pass in a pointer to a filename to instruct libcurl to use that file as the Alt-Svc cache to read existing cache contents from and possibly also write it back to a after a transfer, unless CURLALTSVC_READONLYFILE is set in CURLOPT_ALTSVC_CTRL(3).

Specify a blank file name ("") to make libcurl not load from a file at all.  

DEFAULT

NULL. The alt-svc cache is not read nor written to file.
