CURLOPT_HEADERDATA(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_HEADERDATA(3)

CURLOPT_HEADERDATA - pointer to pass to header callback

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

Pass a pointer to be used to write the header part of the received data to.

If CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION(3) or CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION(3) is used, pointer is passed in to the respective callback.

If neither of those options are set, pointer must be a valid FILE * and it is used by a plain fwrite() to write headers to.

If you are using libcurl as a win32 DLL, you MUST use a CURLOPT_WRITEFUNCTION(3) or CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION(3) if you set this option or you might experience crashes.
