CURLOPT_HTTPPOST(3)        curl_easy_setopt options        CURLOPT_HTTPPOST(3)




NAME

       CURLOPT_HTTPPOST - specify the multipart formpost content


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HTTPPOST,
                                 struct curl_httppost *formpost);


DESCRIPTION

       Tells  libcurl  you  want a multipart/formdata HTTP POST to be made and
       you instruct what data to pass on to the server in the  formpost  argu-
       ment.   Pass  a  pointer  to  a linked list of curl_httppost structs as
       parameter.  The easiest way to create such a list, is to use  curl_for-
       madd(3) as documented. The data in this list must remain intact as long
       as the curl transfer is alive and is using it.

       Using POST with HTTP 1.1 implies the use of  a  "Expect:  100-continue"
       header.  You can disable this header with CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER(3).

       When  setting  CURLOPT_HTTPPOST(3),  it  will  automatically  set  CUR-
       LOPT_NOBODY(3) to 0.

       This option is deprecated!  Do  not  use  it.  Use  CURLOPT_MIMEPOST(3)
       instead after having prepared mime data.


DEFAULT

       NULL


PROTOCOLS

       HTTP


EXAMPLE

       /* Fill in the file upload field. This makes libcurl load data from
          the given file name when curl_easy_perform() is called. */
       curl_formadd(&formpost,
                    &lastptr,
                    CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "sendfile",
                    CURLFORM_FILE, "postit2.c",
                    CURLFORM_END);

       /* Fill in the filename field */
       curl_formadd(&formpost,
                    &lastptr,
                    CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "filename",
                    CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, "postit2.c",
                    CURLFORM_END);

       /* Fill in the submit field too, even if this is rarely needed */
       curl_formadd(&formpost,
                    &lastptr,
                    CURLFORM_COPYNAME, "submit",
                    CURLFORM_COPYCONTENTS, "send",
                    CURLFORM_END);
