CURLOPT_SEEKDATA(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_SEEKDATA(3)

CURLOPT_SEEKDATA - pointer passed to the seek callback

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

Data pointer to pass to the seek callback function. If you use the CURLOPT_SEEKFUNCTION(3) option, this is the pointer you get as input.

If you do not set this, NULL is passed to the callback.

  lseek(d->our_fd, offset, origin);
  return CURL_SEEKFUNC_OK;
}
int main(void)

  struct data seek_data;
  CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
