EXAMPLE

static gboolean timeout_cb(gpointer user_data)
{
int running;
if(user_data) {
g_free(user_data);
curl_multi_setopt(curl_handle, CURLMOPT_TIMERDATA, NULL);
}
curl_multi_socket_action(multi, CURL_SOCKET_TIMEOUT, 0, &running);
return G_SOURCE_REMOVE;
}

static int timerfunc(CURLM *multi, long timeout_ms, void *userp)
{
guint *id = userp;

if(id)
g_source_remove(*id);

/* -1 means we should just delete our timer. */
if(timeout_ms == -1) {
g_free(id);
id = NULL;
}
else {
if(!id)
id = g_new(guint, 1);
*id = g_timeout_add(timeout_ms, timeout_cb, id);
}
curl_multi_setopt(multi, CURLMOPT_TIMERDATA, id);
return 0;
}
