CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET(3)




NAME

       CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET - set an abstract Unix domain socket


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode  curl_easy_setopt(CURL  *handle, CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET,
       char *path);


DESCRIPTION

       Enables the use of an abstract Unix domain socket instead of establish-
       ing  a  TCP connection to a host. The parameter should be a char * to a
       zero terminated string holding the path of the socket. The path will be
       set  to  path  prefixed  by  a  NULL  byte  (this is the convention for
       abstract sockets, however it should be stressed that the path passed to
       this function should not contain a leading NULL).

       On  non-supporting  platforms, the abstract address will be interpreted
       as an empty string and fail gracefully, generating a run-time error.

       This option shares the same semantics as CURLOPT_UNIX_SOCKET_PATH(3) in
       which  documentation  more  details can be found. Internally, these two
       options share the same storage and therefore only one of  them  can  be
       set per handle.



DEFAULT

       Default is NULL.


EXAMPLE

           curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET, "/tmp/foo.sock");
           curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_URL, "http://localhost/");



AVAILABILITY

       Since 7.53.0.


RETURN VALUE

       Returns  CURLE_OK  if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION
       if not.
