NAME

       CURLOPT_NOBODY - do the download request without getting the body

SYNOPSIS

       #include <curl/curl.h>

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_NOBODY, long opt);

DESCRIPTION

       A  long  parameter  set to 1 tells libcurl to not include the body-part in the output when
       doing what would otherwise be a download. For  HTTP(S),  this  makes  libcurl  do  a  HEAD
       request. For most other protocols it means just not asking to transfer the body data.

       Enabling this option means asking for a download but without a body.

DEFAULT

       0, the body is transferred

PROTOCOLS

EXAMPLE

       curl = curl_easy_init();

         /* get us the resource without a body! */
         curl_easy_setopt(curl, CURLOPT_NOBODY, 1L);

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