CURLOPT_NOBODY explained

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_NOBODY, 1L);
 
  /* Perform the request */
  curl_easy_perform(curl);
}
