NAME

       CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL - get the URL a redirect would go to

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

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

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  pointer  to a char pointer to receive the URL a redirect would take you to if you
       would enable CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3). This can come very handy if you  think  using  the
       built-in  libcurl  redirect  logic isn't good enough for you but you would still prefer to
       avoid implementing all the magic of figuring out the new URL.

       This URL is also set if the CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS(3) limit  prevented  a  redirect  to  happen
       (since 7.54.1).

PROTOCOLS

       HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         CURLcode res;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com");
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(res == CURLE_OK) {
           char *url = NULL;
           curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_REDIRECT_URL, &url);
           if(url)
             printf("Redirect to: %s\n", url);
         }
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Added in 7.18.2

       Returns CURLE_OK if the option is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
