CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD − password to use with proxy authentication
CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD, char *pwd);
Pass a char * as parameter, which should be pointing to the null-terminated password to use for authentication with the proxy.
The CURLOPT_PROXYPASSWORD(3) option should be used in conjunction with the CURLOPT_PROXYUSERNAME(3) option.
The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.
