NAME

       CURLOPT_NETRC - request that .netrc is used

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NETRC, long level);

DESCRIPTION

       This  parameter  controls  the  preference  level  of libcurl between using user names and
       passwords from your ~/.netrc file, relative  to  user  names  and  passwords  in  the  URL
       supplied  with CURLOPT_URL(3). On Windows, libcurl will use the file as %HOME%/_netrc, but
       you can also tell libcurl a different file name to use with CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE(3).

       libcurl  uses  a  user  name  (and  supplied   or   prompted   password)   supplied   with
       CURLOPT_USERPWD(3)  or  CURLOPT_USERNAME(3) in preference to any of the options controlled
       by this parameter.

       Only machine name, user name and password are taken into account (init macros and  similar
       things aren't supported).

       libcurl does not verify that the file has the correct properties set (as the standard Unix
       ftp client does). It should only be readable by user.

       level should be set to one of the values described below.

       CURL_NETRC_OPTIONAL
              The use of your ~/.netrc file is optional, and information in  the  URL  is  to  be
              preferred.   The  file  will  be  scanned  for  the host and user name (to find the
              password only) or for the host only, to find the first user name and password after
              that machine, which ever information is not specified in the URL.

              Undefined values of the option will have this effect.

       CURL_NETRC_IGNORED
              The library will ignore the file and use only the information in the URL.

              This is the default.

       CURL_NETRC_REQUIRED
              This  value  tells  the  library  that  use  of the file is required, to ignore the
              information in the URL, and to search the file for the host only.

DEFAULT

       CURL_NETRC_IGNORED
