NAME

       CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE - make connection get closed at once after use

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FORBID_REUSE, long close);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass a long. Set close to 1 to make libcurl explicitly close the connection when done with
       the transfer. Normally, libcurl keeps all connections alive when done with one transfer in
       case  a  succeeding  one  follows  that  can re-use them.  This option should be used with
       caution and only if you understand what it does as it can seriously impact performance.

       Set to 0 to have libcurl keep the connection  open  for  possible  later  re-use  (default
       behavior).

DEFAULT

       0

         curl_easy_perform(curl);

         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }
