Section: curl_easy_setopt options (3)
Updated: June 25, 2020
CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD - password to use with proxy authentication
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD, char *pwd);
Pass a char * as parameter, which should be pointing to the null-terminated
password to use for authentication with the proxy.
The CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD(3) option should be used in conjunction with
the CURLOPT_PROXYUSERNAME(3) option.
The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this
CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/foo.bin");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXY, "http://localhost:8080");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYUSERNAME, "mrsmith");
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD, "qwerty");
ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
Added in 7.19.1
Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or
CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY if there was insufficient heap space.
