Section: curl_easy_setopt options (3)
Updated: August 05, 2019
CURLOPT_HTTP09 - allow HTTP/0.9 response
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HTTP09_ALLOWED, long allowed);
Pass the long argument allowed
set to 1L to allow HTTP/0.9 responses.
A HTTP/0.9 response is a server response entirely without headers and only a
body. You can connect to lots of random TCP services and still get a response
that curl might consider to be HTTP/0.9!
curl allowed HTTP/0.9 responses by default before 7.66.0
Since 7.66.0, libcurl requires this option set to 1L to allow HTTP/0.9
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HTTP09_ALLOWED, 1L);
ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
Option added in 7.64.0, present along with HTTP.
Returns CURLE_OK if HTTP is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
