NAME

CURLOPT_PREQUOTE - commands to run before an FTP transfer  

SYNOPSIS

#include <curl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PREQUOTE,
                          struct curl_slist *cmds);  

DESCRIPTION

Pass a pointer to a linked list of FTP commands to pass to the server after the transfer type is set. The linked list should be a fully valid list of struct curl_slist structs properly filled in as described for CURLOPT_QUOTE(3). Disable this operation again by setting a NULL to this option.

While CURLOPT_QUOTE(3) and CURLOPT_POSTQUOTE(3) work for SFTP, this option does not.  

DEFAULT

NULL  

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE

struct curl_slist *cmdlist = NULL;
cmdlist = curl_slist_append(cmdlist, "SYST");

curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/foo.bin");

  /* pass in the FTP commands to run */
  curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PREQUOTE, cmdlist);

  ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);

  curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
}
 

AVAILABILITY
