Three problems: One is that you're passing in an uninitialized pointer to
curl_easy_getinfo. Two, CURLINFO_CONTENT_LENGTH_DOWNLOAD doesn't take a
pointer to long, it takes a pointer to a double. Three, the remote web
server doesn't provide a length for this URL, probably because it's a
dynamically-generated directory listing.
