       CURLOPT_QUOTE - (S)FTP commands to run before transfer


       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode    curl_easy_setopt(CURL    *handle,   CURLOPT_QUOTE,   struct
       curl_slist *cmds);


       Pass a pointer to a linked list of FTP or SFTP commands to pass to  the
       server  prior  to your request. This will be done before any other com-
       mands are issued (even before the CWD command for FTP). The linked list
       should  be  a  fully valid list of 'struct curl_slist' structs properly
       filled in with text strings. Use curl_slist_append(3) to append strings
       (commands)  to  the  list,  and  clear  the entire list afterwards with
       curl_slist_free_all(3). Disable this operation again by setting a  NULL
       to this option. When speaking to an FTP server, prefix the command with
       an asterisk (*) to make libcurl continue even if the command  fails  as
       by default libcurl will stop at first failure.

       The  set  of valid FTP commands depends on the server (see RFC959 for a
       list of mandatory commands).

       The valid SFTP commands are:

              chgrp group file
                     The chgrp command sets the group ID of the file named  by
                     the  file  operand to the group ID specified by the group
                     operand. The group operand is a decimal integer group ID.

              chmod mode file
                     The  chmod  command  modifies  the  file mode bits of the
                     specified file. The mode operand is an octal integer mode

              chown user file
                     The chown command sets the owner of the file named by the
                     file operand to the user ID specified by the  user  oper-
                     and. The user operand is a decimal integer user ID.

              ln source_file target_file
                     The ln and symlink commands create a symbolic link at the
                     target_file location pointing to  the  source_file  loca-

              mkdir directory_name
                     The  mkdir  command  creates  the  directory named by the
                     directory_name operand.

              pwd    The pwd command returns the absolute pathname of the cur-
                     rent working directory.

              rename source target
                     The rename command renames the file or directory named by
                     the source operand to the destination path named  by  the
                     target operand.

              rm file
                     The rm command removes the file specified by the file op-

              rmdir directory
                     The rmdir command removes the directory  entry  specified
                     by the directory operand, provided it is empty.

              statvfs file
                     The statvfs command returns statistics on the file system
                     in which specified file resides. (Added in 7.49.0)

              symlink source_file target_file
                     See ln.




       SFTP and FTP


       struct curl_slist *h = NULL;
       h = curl_slist_append(h, "RNFR source-name");
       h = curl_slist_append(h, "RNTO new-name");

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");

         /* pass in the FTP commands to run before the transfer */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_QUOTE, headerlist);

         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);



       SFTP support added in 7.16.3. *-prefix for SFTP added in 7.24.0


       Returns CURLE_OK
