NAME

       CURLOPT_FTP_USE_PRET - enable the PRET command

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_FTP_USE_PRET, long enable);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long.  If  the  value is 1, it tells curl to send a PRET command before PASV (and
       EPSV). Certain FTP servers, mainly drftpd, require this non-standard command for directory
       listings as well as up and downloads in PASV mode. Has no effect when using the active FTP
       transfers mode.

DEFAULT

       0

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE

       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/old-server/file.txt");

         /* a drftpd server, do it! */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FTP_USE_PRET, 1L);

         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);

         curl_easy_cleanup(curl);
       }
