NAME

       CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS - maximum number of redirects allowed

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, long amount);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a  long.  The  set  number  will  be  the  redirection  limit  amount.  If that many
       redirections   have   been   followed,   the   next   redirect   will   cause   an   error
       (CURLE_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS).  This option only makes sense if the CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION(3)
       is used at the same time.

       Setting the limit to 0 will make libcurl refuse any redirect.

       Set it to -1 for an infinite number of redirects.

DEFAULT

       -1, unlimited

PROTOCOLS

       HTTP(S)

EXAMPLE

       curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "http://example.com/");

         /* enable redirect following */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_FOLLOWLOCATION, 1L);

         /* allow three redirects */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_MAXREDIRS, 3L);

         /* Perform the request */
         curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY

       Along with HTTP

RETURN VALUE

       Returns CURLE_OK if HTTP is supported, and CURLE_UNKNOWN_OPTION if not.
