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.
