NAME

       curl_multi_add_handle - add an easy handle to a multi session


SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLMcode  curl_multi_add_handle(CURLM  *multi_handle,  CURL *easy_han-
       dle);


DESCRIPTION

       Adds a standard easy handle to the multi stack. This function call will
       make this multi_handle control the specified easy_handle.

       While an easy handle is added to a multi stack, you cannot and you must
       not use curl_easy_perform(3) on that handle. After having  removed  the
       easy  handle from the multi stack again, it is perfectly fine to use it
       with the easy interface again.

       If the easy handle is not set to use  a  shared  (CURLOPT_SHARE(3))  or
       global  DNS cache (CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE(3)), it will be made to
       use the DNS cache that is shared between all easy  handles  within  the
       multi handle when curl_multi_add_handle(3) is called.

       When an easy interface is added to a multi handle, it will use a shared
       connection cache owned by the multi handle.  Removing  and  adding  new
       easy  handles will not affect the pool of connections or the ability to
       do connection re-use.

       If you have CURLMOPT_TIMERFUNCTION set in the  multi  handle  (and  you
       really     should     if     you're     working     event-based    with
       curl_multi_socket_action(3) and friends), that callback will be  called
       from within this function to ask for an updated timer so that your main
       event loop will get the activity on this handle to get started.

       The easy handle will remain added to the multi handle until you  remove
       it  again  with curl_multi_remove_handle(3) - even when a transfer with
       that specific easy handle is completed.

       You should remove the easy handle from the multi stack before you  ter-
       minate first the easy handle and then the multi handle:

       1 - curl_multi_remove_handle(3)

       2 - curl_easy_cleanup(3)

       3 - curl_multi_cleanup(3)


RETURN VALUE

       CURLMcode type, general libcurl multi interface error code.
