CURLOPT_HTTP_TRANSFER_DECODING(3) Library Functions Manual CURLOPT_HTTP_TRANSFER_DECODING(3)

CURLOPT_HTTP_TRANSFER_DECODING - HTTP transfer decoding control

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

Pass a long to tell libcurl how to act on transfer decoding. If set to zero, transfer decoding is disabled, if set to 1 it is enabled (default). libcurl does chunked transfer decoding by default unless this option is set to zero.
