NAME

       CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE - file name to read .netrc info from

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE, char *file);

DESCRIPTION

       Pass  a char * as parameter, pointing to a zero terminated string containing the full path
       name to the file you want libcurl to use as .netrc file. If this option  is  omitted,  and
       CURLOPT_NETRC(3)  is set, libcurl will attempt to find a .netrc file in the current user's
       home directory.

       The application does not have to keep the string around after setting this option.

DEFAULT

       NULL

PROTOCOLS

       All

EXAMPLE

       CURL *curl = curl_easy_init();
       if(curl) {
         CURLcode ret;
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_URL, "ftp://example.com/");
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NETRC, CURL_NETRC_OPTIONAL);
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NETRC_FILE, "/tmp/magic-netrc");
         ret = curl_easy_perform(curl);
       }

AVAILABILITY
