CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE(3)

CURLOPT_DNS_USE_GLOBAL_CACHE - global DNS cache

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

Has no function since 7.62.0. Do not use!

Pass a long. If the enable value is 1, it tells curl to use a global DNS cache that survives between easy handle creations and deletions. This is not thread-safe and this uses a global variable.

See CURLOPT_SHARE(3) and curl_share_init(3) for the correct way to share DNS cache between transfers.
