EXAMPLE

/* make libcurl use the already established socket ’sockfd’ */

static curl_socket_t opensocket(void *clientp,
curlsocktype purpose,
struct curl_sockaddr *address)
{
curl_socket_t sockfd;
sockfd = *(curl_socket_t *)clientp;
/* the actual externally set socket is passed in via the OPENSOCKETDATA
option */
return sockfd;
}

static int sockopt_callback(void *clientp, curl_socket_t curlfd,
curlsocktype purpose)
{
/* This return code was added in libcurl 7.21.5 */
return CURL_SOCKOPT_ALREADY_CONNECTED;
}

curl = curl_easy_init();
if(curl) {
/* libcurl will internally think that you connect to the host
* and port that you specify in the URL option. */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://99.99.99.99:9999");
/* call this function to get a socket */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_OPENSOCKETFUNCTION, opensocket);
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_OPENSOCKETDATA, &sockfd);

/* call this function to set options for the socket */
curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_SOCKOPTFUNCTION, sockopt_callback);
