CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3)

CURLOPT_HTTPGET - ask for an HTTP GET request

#include <curl/curl.h>
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, long useget);

Pass a long. If useget is 1, this forces the HTTP request to get back to using GET. Usable if a POST, HEAD, PUT, etc has been used previously using the same curl handle.

When setting CURLOPT_HTTPGET(3) to 1, libcurl automatically sets CURLOPT_NOBODY(3) to 0 and CURLOPT_UPLOAD(3) to 0.

Setting this option to zero has no effect. Applications need to explicitly select which HTTP request method to use, they cannot deselect a method. To reset a handle to default method, consider curl_easy_reset(3).



int main(void)
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
  if(curl) {
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "");
    /* use a GET to fetch this */
    curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_HTTPGET, 1L);
    /* Perform the request */

Along with HTTP

Returns CURLE_OK if HTTP is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
