NAME

       CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL - get the last used URL

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_getinfo(CURL *handle, CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL, char **urlp);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass in a pointer to a char pointer and get the last used effective URL.

       In  cases  when you've asked libcurl to follow redirects, it may very well not be the same
       value you set with CURLOPT_URL(3).

       The urlp pointer will be NULL or pointing to private memory you MUST NOT free  -  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) {
         CURLcode res;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(res == CURLE_OK) {
           char *url = NULL;
           curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_EFFECTIVE_URL, &url);
           if(url)
             printf("Redirect to: %s\n", url);
         }
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
