CURLOPT_NOBODY(3)          curl_easy_setopt options          CURLOPT_NOBODY(3)




NAME

       CURLOPT_NOBODY - do the download request without getting the body


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NOBODY, long opt);


DESCRIPTION

       A long parameter set to 1 tells libcurl to not include the body-part in
       the output when doing what would otherwise be a download. For  HTTP(S),
       this makes libcurl do a HEAD request. For most other protocols it means
       just not asking to transfer the body data.

       Enabling this option means asking for a download but without a body.


DEFAULT

       0, the body is transferred


PROTOCOLS

       Most


EXAMPLE

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");

         /* get us the resource without a body! */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NOBODY, 1L);

         /* Perform the request */
         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }


AVAILABILITY

       Always


RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK
