GNURLOPT_MAXREDIRS

NAME

CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS − maximum number of redirects allowed

SYNOPSIS

#include <gnurl/curl.h>

CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, long amount);

DESCRIPTION

Pass a long. The set number will be the redirection limit amount. If that many redirections have been followed, the next redirect will cause an error (CURLE_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS). This option only makes sense if the CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3) is used at the same time.

Setting the limit to 0 will make libcurl refuse any redirect.

Set it to -1 for an infinite number of redirects.

DEFAULT

-1, unlimited

PROTOCOLS

HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE

curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/");

/* enable redirect following */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);

/* allow three redirects */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 3L);

/* Perform the request */
curl_easy_perform(curl);
}

AVAILABILITY

Along with HTTP

RETURN VALUE

Returns CURLE_OK if HTTP is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
