NAME

       CURLOPT_FILETIME - get the modification time of the remote resource

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FILETIME, long gettime);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long. If it is 1, libcurl will attempt to get the modification time of the remote
       document in this operation. This requires that the remote server sends the time or replies
       to    a    time   querying   command.   The   curl_easy_getinfo(3)   function   with   the
       CURLINFO_FILETIME(3) argument can be used after a transfer to extract  the  received  time
       (if any).

DEFAULT

       0

PROTOCOLS

       HTTP, FTP, SFTP, FILE

EXAMPLE

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, url);
         /* Ask for filetime */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FILETIME, 1L);
         res = curl_easy_perform(curl);
         if(CURLE_OK == res) {
           res = curl_easy_getinfo(curl, CURLINFO_FILETIME, &filetime);
           if((CURLE_OK == res) && (filetime >= 0)) {
             time_t file_time = (time_t)filetime;
             printf("filetime %s: %s", filename, ctime(&file_time));
           }
         }
         /* always cleanup */
         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
