NAME

       CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET - set an abstract Unix domain socket

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET, char *path);

DESCRIPTION

       Enables the use of an abstract Unix domain socket instead of establishing a TCP connection
       to a host. The parameter should be a char * to a zero terminated string holding  the  path
       of  the  socket.  The  path  will  be  set  to  path  prefixed by a NULL byte (this is the
       convention for abstract sockets, however it should be stressed that  the  path  passed  to
       this function should not contain a leading NULL).

       On  non-supporting  platforms, the abstract address will be interpreted as an empty string
       and fail gracefully, generating a run-time error.

       This  option  shares  the  same  semantics   as   CURLOPT_UNIX_SOCKET_PATH(3)   in   which
       documentation  more  details  can  be  found. Internally, these two options share the same
       storage and therefore only one of them can be set per handle.

DEFAULT

       Default is NULL.

EXAMPLE

           curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_ABSTRACT_UNIX_SOCKET, "/tmp/foo.sock");
           curl_easy_setopt(curl_handle, CURLOPT_URL, "http://localhost/");

AVAILABILITY

       Since 7.53.0.

RETURN VALUE

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