NAME

       CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE - get Content-Type

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE, char **ct);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  pointer  to  a char pointer to receive the content-type of the downloaded object.
       This is the value read from the Content-Type: field. If you get NULL, it  means  that  the
       server  didn't  send a valid Content-Type header or that the protocol used doesn't support
       this.

       The ct pointer will be NULL or pointing to private memory you MUST NOT free it -  it  gets
       freed when you call curl_easy_cleanup(3) on the corresponding CURL handle.

PROTOCOLS

       HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE

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

         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);

         if(!res) {
           /* extract the content-type */
           char *ct = NULL;
           res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_CONTENT_TYPE, &ct);
           if(!res && ct) {
             printf("Content-Type: %s\n", ct);
           }
         }
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
