NAME

       CURLOPT_EGDSOCKET - set EGD socket path

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

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

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a char * to the zero terminated path name to the Entropy Gathering Daemon socket. It
       will be used to seed the random engine for SSL.

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       NULL

PROTOCOLS

       All TLS based protocols: HTTPS, FTPS, IMAPS, POP3S, SMTPS etc.

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "https://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_EGDSOCKET, "/var/egd.socket");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       If built TLS enabled. Only the OpenSSL and GnuTLS backends will use this.

RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK if TLS is supported, CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not, or  CURLE_OUT_OF_MEMORY
       if there was insufficient heap space.
