Many thanks! This is committed to the CVS now.
I did two minor tweaks:
o The CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE define should not re-use an existing info, as
that breaks binary compatibility. It set it to CURLINFO_STRING + 18 now.
o The lib/transfer.c snippet used strlen() twice on the header, while it
didn't do any real harm, it made the impression that it got the length of
the content-type string which it of course didn't since a header can have
more white space and it has a trailing CRLF. I modified that logic to
parse the content-type string more explicitly. Have a look and feel free
Can you also add some CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE docs to the
docs/curl_easy_getinfo.3 man page?
I am considering adding a curl_easy_setopt() option that tells curl to do
this "keep the content-type string" operation, and thus not always do it
unconditionally. Like how CURLOPT_FILETIME works already.
Anyone has any thoughts around how libcurl does things like this?
