CURLOPT_CURLU(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_CURLU(3)

CURLOPT_CURLU - URL in URL handle format

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_CURLU, CURLU *pointer);

Pass in a pointer to the URL handle to work with. The parameter should be a CURLU pointer. Setting CURLOPT_CURLU(3) explicitly overrides CURLOPT_URL(3).

CURLOPT_URL(3) or CURLOPT_CURLU(3) must be set before a transfer is started.

libcurl uses this handle and its contents read-only and does not change its contents. An application can update the contents of the URL handle after a transfer is done and if the same handle is used in a subsequent request the updated contents is used.

The default value of this parameter is NULL.


int main(void)
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  CURLU *urlp = curl_url();
  if(curl) {
    CURLcode res;
    CURLUcode ret;
    ret = curl_url_set(urlp, CURLUPART_URL, "", 0);
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_CURLU, urlp);
    res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

Added in 7.63.0.

Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
