CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE(3)



NAME

       CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE - maximum file size allowed to download


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_MAXFILESIZE_LARGE,
                                 curl_off_t size);


DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a curl_off_t as parameter. This allows you to specify the maximum
       size (in bytes) of a file to download. If the file requested  is  found
       larger  than  this  value,  the transfer will not start and CURLE_FILE-
       SIZE_EXCEEDED will be returned.

       The file size is not always known prior to download, and for such files
       this  option  has  no  effect  even  if the file transfer ends up being
       larger than this given limit. This concerns both FTP  and  HTTP  trans-
       fers.


DEFAULT

       None


PROTOCOLS

       FTP and HTTP


EXAMPLE

       TODO


AVAILABILITY

       Added in 7.11.0


RETURN VALUE

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