NAME

       CURLOPT_HEADER - pass headers to the data stream

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_HEADER, long onoff);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  in  onoff  set to 1 to tell the library to include the header in the body output for
       requests with this handle. This option  is  relevant  for  protocols  that  actually  have
       headers or other meta-data (like HTTP and FTP).

       When  asking  to  get  the  header info passed to the same callback as the body, it is not
       possible to accurately separate them again without detailed knowledge about  the  protocol
       in use.

       It is often better to use CURLOPT_HEADERFUNCTION(3) to get the header data separately.

       While named confusingly similar, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER(3) is used to set custom HTTP headers!
