CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3)         curl_easy_setopt options         CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3)




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 CUR-
       LOPT_NOBODY(3) to 0 and CURLOPT_UPLOAD(3) to 0.

       Setting this option to zero has no effect. Applications need to explic-
       itly  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.
